    Bill Chiodo, son of 2nd Lt. Godfrey J. Savard, is featured in "Memorial Day 2017: The Cost of Freedom."

    Friday, May 26, 2017

    To commemorate Memorial Day, ABMC is releasing “Memorial Day 2017: The Cost of Freedom (link is external).” This short film features three family members who have a loved one buried overseas. Robert Meek, son of 2nd Lt. Robert H. Meek, Bill Chiodo, son of 2nd Lt. Godfrey J. Savard, and Thomas Lanagan, nephew of Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, all participated in video interviews to tell the story of their family member. This film includes short excerpts from these interviews, where these men talk about the true cost of freedom in the United States. Staff from ABMC’s Office of External Affairs conducts these interviews at its headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, and then uses portions of the videos to share the agency’s mission.

    With more than 400,000 Americans who died in World War II, the ripple of this loss is still felt strongly today.  If you have a family member honored overseas, and live in the Washington, DC area or will be traveling to the area,  and would like to participate in an on-camera interview, send ABMC an email (link sends e-mail).

    Update: Phase I projected to be completed in November 2017 and the second phase is expected to be completed in 2018.

    The Honolulu Memorial at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is undergoing a major renovation project, which began in 2014. The Italian Trani limestone panels at the Courts of the Missing, containing more than 25,000 names from World War II and the Korean War, will be replaced and re-engraved.  The original stone selected in the 1960s proved to be prone to staining, deteriorating the overall look of the memorial.  The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC)  committed more than $10M for this project, which included a year-long study to identify an appropriate stone of similar appearance, but higher quality and design, and an improved mounting system.   The stone selected is a Portuguese limestone.        

    In preparation for the stone replacement, crews have begun cordoning off work areas and prepping the site.  The first phase of the project to renovate four of the eight courts (Courts 2, 4, 6 and 8) is expected to be completed in November 2017.  The second phase (Courts 1, 3, 5 and 7) is expected to be completed in 2018.  

    During the work, portions of the Courts of the Missing will not be accessible to the public due to safety concerns. The majority of the monument itself will be open including all map pavilions, the chapel, the upper terrace, the Vietnam Courts of Missing and the public restrooms.  If you are planning a visit to honor someone commemorated in the Courts of the Missing, please visit the Honolulu Memorial page on ABMC.gov, or contact Tim Nosal at 703-696-6789 for the most up-to-date information.

    The Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial honor those Americans that were missing in action, or were lost or buried at sea in the Pacific during World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War. The Honolulu Memorial includes only a portion of the names from World War II that were lost in the Pacific—more than 36,000 names are engraved on the Walls of the Missing at Manila American Cemetery in the Philippines.  The Courts of the Missing for the Vietnam War, which were added in the 1980s, are in fair condition, of a different stone and unnecessary to replace at the current time.

    The Army Corps of Engineers is leading the site management of the project, which includes construction work by MIRA Image Construction LLC and architectural design and historic preservation by Fung Associates, Inc.  The memorial is located within the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, which is operated by the National Cemetery Administration (NCA), an agency within the Department of Veterans Affairs. The cemetery remains open and accessible to the public with normal operating hours. Visit the NCA website, for more information on the cemetery.
