Civilians and military personnel crowding sidewalk


Image from Bishop Museum Archives, Honolulu, Hawaii. Images are not to be re-used without permission.

Downtown Honolulu was crowded with uniformed personnel towards the end of World War II, and in small towns throughout the islands the military often outnumbered the civilians. Everyone felt the strain; residents were sometimes resentful of being ordered around, while the soldiers and sailors complained of few opportunities for recreation and of being overcharged for what little they could get.
