Secure history for future generations by making provisions in your estate for future gifts to the Admiral Nimitz Foundation
“Uncommon valor was a common virtue.” Fleet Admiral Nimitz’s words in 1945 ring true today as we tell the sweeping story of World War II in the Pacific. This is the story — the history — we are dedicated to honoring, teaching and preserving at The National Museum of the Pacific. Visit us to experience this extraordinary chapter of our nation’s history.

The fact that many who fought on Guadalcanal September 12 – 14, 1942 referred to this period as the Battle of Bloody Ridge serves as a testament to the severity of the fighting and loss of life on the island. This second of three major Japanese ground offensives during the Guadalcanal Campaign saw the Imperial Japanese Army try to reclaim the Lunga perimeter which was lost to Allied forces on August 7.
