After visiting many of the other important historical sites, ie., USS Arizona (and talking with several Pearl Harbor survivors), USS Missouri, ect., visiting the PunchBowl was a poignant way to end the day.
My only suggestion to anyone thinking of driving up here is to research who is actually buried there and to visit their graves. Perhaps the most celebrated would no doubt be Ernie Pyle, but the Punchbowl has many other historic figures.
I was able to easily located several graves of causalties of the Pearl Harbor attack, as well as many from Iwo Jima.
My only complaint, or disappointment perhaps, is what some folks have done to the trees within the cemetary. What a shame.
