Developers have WWII airfield in their sights

Developers have WWII airfield in their sights | Als Return to Education | Scoop.it
During an anniversary ceremony in Hawaii several years ago, retired Marine Maj. John Hughes described the scene of the surprise attack by the Japanese on the island on Dec. 7, 1941.
Al Picozzi's insight:

A battle here going on historical importance and culture on one side and the need to develop on the other.  the City Council of Honolulu gave the ok to develop the area of Ewa Filed.  This was one of the airfields that was attacked during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.  Many people do not want this to happen as it is an important to them for the memory it serves, no less important in their eyes to say the Arizona Memorial.  We need, as a culture, in my opinion to keep this historical sites free from development so we know where we have come from and where we need to go in the future.

The National WWII Museum: WWII at a Glance: Victory Gardens

The National WWII Museum: WWII at a Glance: Victory Gardens | Als Return to Education | Scoop.it
During World War II, Victory Gardens were planted by families in the United States (the Home Front) to help prevent a food shortage.
Al Picozzi's insight:

Talk about a change in agriculture during wartime.  These garden eventually accounted for 40% of all veggies grown in the US by 1944.  My great Uncle started one and kept it till he passed away.  Just amazing to see what could be grown even in cities when it was absolutely necessary.  More info can be found here: http://classroomvictorygarden.org/
