B-Roll of the new memorial pavilion at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii. The pavilion honors the more than nine million Americans who fought in the Vietnam War, including more than 58,000 who lost their lives in the conflict. Two walls inside the pavilion feature mosaic maps showing battles and units involved in the war. The memorial was officially opened to welcome visitors at the end of a Veterans Day ceremony at the cemetery, in which maile lei were untied by U.S. Senator Akaka, Secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission, former U.S. Senator and Vietnam veteran Max Cleland, and others. The maps were the work of artist Mary Jacobs, who also created the WW2 and Korean War maps that can be found at the memorial site. Soundbite from Sec. Max Cleland, American Battle Monuments Commission. Also available in high definition.
