World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument
World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument commemorates the heroic sacrifices made in the cause of democracy and freedom during World War II at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The mooring quays of Battleship Row are the last structures that mark the locations of the American battleship force during that fateful day of December 7, 1941. These quiet sentinels played a significant role in post-attack salvage, serving as moorings for salvage ships and barges, as well as legs for ship-to-shore bridges and cross-ship platforms.
On their boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial, visitors to the national monument see the mooring quays and are reminded of the battle that ignited social, political, and economic changes still resonating today. But without restoration, the quays may disintegrate completely.
A $250,000 grant from Partners in Preservation: National Parks will restore and stabilize one of the quays of Battleship Row, serving as a model for eventual repairs to all six structures.
