“The Nine Most Endangered Historic Sites in Hawaii 11/08


November issue

Our annual list of endangered historic sites, compiled by the Historic Hawaii Foundation, included such places as Fort Kamehameha at Hickam Air Force Base, the Kalauhaehae fishpond of Niu Valley and Ewa Field, a long forgotten World War II battlesite.

Thank you very much for being a part of our Save Ewa Field effort to do what is right and showing your active support and interest via HONOLULU Magazine.

After our Sunday, December 7 event, as well as past efforts, the Navy has now agreed to allow the National Historic Registration process to take place—this is our long sought objective—as it will make Ewa Field an officially recognized National Battlefield, a process administered by the National Park Service.

This process will take a few months, but it will open the door for historians to fully document the battle sites, including the overall air battles, that have been long neglected and overlooked for the past 60 years. Ewa Field will finally get the official national recognition it deserves.

Our new project now will be to work on having a documentary film/video made for television and film festivals and for viewing by veterans groups and wider public audiences to help raise national awareness about Ewa Field’s World War II-era history.

Later, funds will be raised for a museum, park area administration and development as the national economy improves.

—JOHN BOND, SAVE EWA FIELD, EWA BEACH
