5. CENTENNIAL PLAZA
The original flagpole was completed on 28 February 1908 at a cost of $511.67. It has since been rebuilt using the original design.
The plaques in Centennial Plaza provide a snapshot of the important role that the Army has played in the Pacific Theater. They give a brief history of U.S. Army involvement in the Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion in China (1900), the Philippine Insurrection, the Siberian Expedition (1918-1920), World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
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.
