As we kick off Memorial Day Weekend, Jane visited the "Big Barracks" on Hickam Field. The barracks housed and fed over 3000 airmen in the Army Air Corps. On the Day of Infamy, they also came under attack ...
|Today the building serves at the Headquarters for|
the Pacific Air Forces. Note the bullet holes are
preserved to remember the fallen.
|The building is open to the public. The hallway|
offers several displays with WWII memorabilia.
|Jane is sitting next to one of the bullet holes |
in the interior stairwell.
|Look for the second hole above Jane.|
|The courtyard is dedicated to the heroes of |
campaigns supported by Pacific Air Forces,
including WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.
|This flag from December 7, 1941 was sent |
on a war bond tour. It was displayed at the
Air Force Academy before returning to Hawaii.
