Lt. Col. Horace Meek Hickam Elementary School (HES) was established in 1950 and is situated on Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam in Honolulu, Hawaii. Many surrounding homes and buildings are determined to be historic through the National Register of Historic Places and the local military designation. These protected structures are important, as they help to define the community from the memory of World War II and with a sense of orientation to military traditions. The water tower fronting the school commemorates the victory and was aptly named the Freedom Tower.
