Save Ewa Field Update

Ewa Field MCAS Preservation Resolution PASSED by Hawaii Legislature

Aloha Rear Admiral Smith,

The will of the Ewa-West Oahu Community SUPPORTS full Ewa Field
preservation, not PV panels with a high security fence around it for 20+
years. That is not preservation.

The Ewa Field Resolution 49 was passed by the Hawaii State Legislative
session on Wednesday, May 6, 2009

URGING FULL PRESERVATION OF UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS AIR STATION EWA AS A
NATIONAL MONUMENT, MUSEUM, AND RESTORED PARK FOR THE STATE OF HAWAII.

HCR&billnumber=49


The State Legislature got behind the Preservation of the MCAS Ewa Field with
the goal to expedite the listing of the December 7, 1941 battlefield as a
National Monument, National Landmark and recognized National American
Battlefield.

Nearly identical resolutions were also passed in 2009 on Oahu by three
Neighborhood Boards- Ewa Beach NB, Waipahu NB and Kailua-Windward NB.

This is the expressed will of the Ewa-West Oahu community. It couldn't be
stated any clearer what the Ewa West Oahu Community wants to see at Ewa
Field and why we have had such broad support for this goal for over three
years.

Here's what the State Legislature resolution actually said-
