Guadalcanal Memorial

Overview

The World War II Guadalcanal American Memorial is located on Skyline Drive overlooking the town of Honiara, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. It was built through the joint efforts of ABMC and the Guadalcanal-Solomon Islands Memorial Commission.
It honors those Americans and its allies who lost their lives during the Guadalcanal Campaign of World War II (August 7, 1942 to February 9, 1943). The memorial consists of a 4-foot square, 24-foot tall pylon on which is inscribed:

This memorial has been erected by the
United States of America
in humble tribute to its sons and its allies
who paid the ultimate sacrifice
for the liberation of the Solomon Islands
1942-1943

There are four directional walls pointing to the four major battle areas. Inscribed on these walls are a description of the battles and a listing of the U.S. and Allied ships that were lost.
