The Enoura Maru Memorial Stone Dedication was held 15 August at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. This memorial stone is to remind us of the POWs who died while locked below deck on three Japanese ships that travelled from the Philippines to Japan during WWII. One of the survivors was in attendance: 96-year-old DanielCrowley. Two other survivors, who were not able to attend, sent letters describing the unspeakable horrors of life on the hellships. On this day we remembered and honored the sacrifice of these men whose lives were lost in 1945.
