Elks Supporting Pearl Harbor

Preserving History For Future Generations

Elks Remember Pearl Harbor

The Pearl Harbor National Memorial and the B.P.O. of Elks share a proud history of honoring the service and dedication of Americans whose profound sacrifices for our nation should never be forgotten. Through the support of the B.P.O.E., a premier national patriotic fraternal organization, Pacific Historic Parks is able to support the Pearl Harbor National Memorial (USS Arizona Memorial) through education and interpretive programs, research, preservation, and restoration. Pacific Historic Parks exists to perpetuate the memory of events and honor the people involved in this site.

As the Greatest Generation passes at the alarming rate of 350 World War II veterans a day, it is our duty to always Remember, Honor and Understand those who have gone before us.
