Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
Kaneohe was bombed by the Japanese seven minutes earlier than Pearl Harbor; approximately one hour later the base came under a second attack and suffered great losses from both attacks that day. The Japanese goal was to destroy the American planes before they could take to the air and interfere with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Hangar No. 1, the "parking" area, and the seaplane ramps remain.
