Military in Hawaii

The United States military has a major presence in Hawaii that dates back to before World War II and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The Hawaiian Islands are central to U.S. military operations in the Pacific and serve as both a staging and training ground. Honolulu is the headquarters for the United States Pacific Command (PACOM), a command whose responsibility covers half the globe — from the U.S. West Coast to India, from Antarctica to the North Pole.
