This is a cemetery of honor, respect, beauty and serenity. Highly recommend spending the time to visit and walk up the memorial walk past the main staged plaza of MIA soldiers. You will gain as much from this site as you bring to it. It really is a must see if you have seen the Arizona and associated museum. You can spend a long time understanding the beautifully carved diagrams of the major offenses and battles from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. The view from the top of the memorial walk is absolutely amazing, especially if you have time and a group amenable to reading the memorial stones along the walk. I found particular closure to my experiences at the USS Arizona when I found several graves of soldiers who perished during the attack who were buried here but never identified, marked as UNKNOWN, though several were identified by the ship they served on. If this is too much for you, it is also a great walk/run up to the cemetery from downtown Waikiki if you enjoy running. The view from the top of the memorial walk is undoubtedly one of the best in all of Honolulu.
