This Marines memorial is at the Marine Corps Base-Hawaii (MCBH) entrance and has stunning views of the bay and mountains to the west. It is a replica of the Joe Rosenthal-inspired memorial in Newington, Connecticut, slightly different from Arlington, Virginia, and Harlingen, Texas. It holds a special place in Hawaiians' hearts since Oahu is one of three places that Marines trained to take Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima. The other two places were the Island of Maui and Guam.
