In 1943, the governor of Hawaiʻi offered
Punchbowl [crater above] for use as a national memorial cemetery; in February 1948 Congress approved funding and construction began.
The first interment was made Jan. 4, 1949.
The cemetery opened to the public on July 19, 1949, with services for five war dead: an unknown serviceman, two Marines, an Army lieutenant and one civilian—noted war correspondent Ernie Pyle.

and the African Tulips in the tree is delightful to me
'What are you doing down there?'
'Just hanging around!'

Tell them I was arrested
for carrying concealed ideas!

Each of us finds their
 unique vehicle for
sharing with others
our bit of wisdom.

Suffering is part of
our training program
for becoming wise.
 Ram Dass

A quotation is a handy thing
to have about, saving one the
trouble of thinking for oneself,
always a laborious business.
A. A. Milne
