This World War II Bunker Turned Movie Set In Hawaii Is Truly A Sight To See
The United States’ involvement in World War II was profound, but perhaps nowhere was the war more impactful than in Hawaii. And while we’ve talked all about the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor before, today we’re sharing with you another unique slice of WWII history found right here in Hawaii: a bunker carved into the mountainside on Oahu’s windward coast that has not only protected those in distress but has served as both a movie set and now museum.
