A group of sailors on leave walk through city streets.

"To Honolulu and Hawaii, the army and the navy are a vital part of their existence, as well as a big economic factor... Our [U.S.] Government has seemingly left no stone unturned in Oahu to make the Pacific crossroads safe... Near Waikiki you ride right through Fort De Russy and close up to the disappearing guns that sullenly guard the eastern approaches."
-- Beautiful Hawaii, J. Walker McSpadden, 1939
