BATTLESHIP MISSOURI MEMORIAL TO OFFER SNEAK PREVIEW OF HAWAII FIVE-0 WORLD WAR II REMEMBRANCE EPISODE, DECEMBER 7-13

News Release from Battleship Missouri Association

Pearl Harbor, HI – (December 6, 2013) – Starting this Saturday, December 7 through December 13, visitors to the Battleship Missouri Memorial will enjoy a special sneak preview of the HAWAII FIVE-0 episode airing nationwide on Friday, December 13, 9PM ET/PT, on the CBS Television Network.

Titled Ho‘onani Makuakane (Hawaiian translation: Honor Thy Father), the episode focuses on the attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran that lead Five-0 to use decades old evidence to investigate a deadly crime committed within the internment camps holding Americans of Japanese ancestry on Oahu during World War II. A remembrance ceremony using actual World War II veterans was filmed at the Battleship Missouri Memorial.

The HAWAII FIVE-0 episode in its entirety will be projected onto a large video screen in the Missouri’s educational classroom, which is air-conditioned and located one deck below the main deck next to the Mess Hall. The episode will be shown on a continuous basis during the following days and times.

  • December 7                     8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 8                     8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 9                     2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 10                   2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 11                   8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 12                   8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • December 13                   11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Paid admission to the Battleship Missouri Memorial is required to see the HAWAII FIVE-0 sneak preview.

Viewers watching the HAWAII FIVE-0 episode onboard the Missouri will also be interested in the special exhibit located near the educational classroom honoring America’s Nisei (second-generation U.S.-born Japanese-American citizens) veterans. Unveiled on Veterans Day, the exhibit stretches more than 50 feet long and includes dramatic photos, news articles and descriptive text on large display panels, and a video telling the story of how these Americans of Japanese ancestry overcame the prejudice and questioning of their loyalty at World War II’s outset to earn acclaim and respect with their courageous exploits in Europe and the Pacific.

America’s last and most famous battleship, the gigantic USS Missouri stretches three football fields long and stands 20 stories tall from keel to mast, and was home to more than 3,000 sailors while in service. The “Mighty Mo” protected America’s freedom in three wars – World War II, Korea, and Desert Storm – over a five-decade period, but is best known for being the site where General Douglas MacArthur and the Allied Forces accepted Imperial Japan’s surrender to end World War II and restore world peace on September 2, 1945.

Today, as the Battleship Missouri Memorial, the USS Missouri is berthed at Pier Foxtrot 5 on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor, standing bow-to-bow to the sunken USS Arizona and creating a stirring bond between America’s two battleships signifying the start and end of World War II.

Battleship Missouri Memorial

The Battleship Missouri Memorial is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. General admission, which includes choice of an optional tour, is $22 per adult and $11 per child (4-12). Military, kama‘aina (local resident) and school group pricing is available. For information or reservations, call (toll-free) 1-877-644-4896 or visit USSMissouri.org.

The Battleship Missouri Memorial, located a mere ship’s length from the USS Arizona Memorial, completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the “day of infamy” and the sinking of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor and ends with Imperial Japan’s surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

Following an astounding career that spans five decades and three wars, from World War II to the Korean conflict to the Liberation of Kuwait, the “Mighty Mo” was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which operates the battleship as a historic attraction and memorial.

The Association oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants and the generosity of donors.
