1. Buckner Gate
On 24 January 1949, Buckner Gate was dedicated in honor of Lieutenant General Simon Bolivar Buckner, Jr. Throughout World War II, Lieutenant General Buckner served in the Pacific Theater. In June 1944, Buckner received orders for the Central Pacific and assumed command of the new Tenth Army. As he led the land forces in the successful invasion of Okinawa, he suffered mortal wounds on 18 June.
USARPAC postures and prepares the force for unified land operations, responds to threats, sustains and protects the force, and builds military relationships that develop partner defense capacity in order to contribute to a stable and secure U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility.
