US War Memorial Honiara

Right next door to my house, atop Skyline Ridge, sits the US War Memorial. Accessible by a nice walk up the hill during the day, or the Skyling Microbus that leaves from behind the town council area, it has a commanding presence overlooking Honiara.

It consists of four directional walls pointing to the four major battle areas. Each wall is inscribed with a description of the battles and a listing of the U.S. and Allied ships that were lost. A friendly monument, hosting many US visitors and tourists, very close to town.
