It does not commemorate a sailing event, but it *is* on an island.

The wind blown trees suggested an island...which was the easy part...I asked if it comes under American jurisdiction...-so we get a geo idea-

American jurisdiction? Do you mean South American? Central American? North American? America's a really big place...

You give up too easily. It's an island. It commemorates/memorializes something, which was a major *world* event. It's not in the Caribbean. It is part of the Americas, depending on how you look at it. There is another, much larger, much more famous (some might say infamous) monument at the same island.

Here's another picture:

Aha! The word "infamous" (December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy) helped a lot! Is it the Haleiwa War Memorial in Oahu by any chance?
