I knew this park existed because when you use Nimitz Hwy to Honolulu one can notice a sign to the Park. The members of Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Association have helped create this park in their honor. I’m a member of the DAV and I always wanted to visit it and I finally did on the 4th of Oct.
