Honolulu – The National Park Service announces the redesignation of the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument to the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. This provision was passed as part of the John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act, which passed both houses of Congress in February and was signed into law on March 12, 2019 by President Donald Trump.
“The park and its partners are universally delighted with the name change that was recently signed into law,” said Superintendent Jacqueline Ashwell. “Our prior name was rather long and unwieldy and difficult to remember. The new name is immediately understandable and is a name commensurate with the importance and reverence of this site.”
Visitors can expect to start seeing the new name on signs and brochures, as well as on Pearl Harbor’s website and social media sites in the coming months.
