Military in Hawaii_2019 Fort Shafter

Outside Honolulu, Fort Shafter has been home to the senior Army headquarters in Hawaii for almost a century. When the post opened in 1907, it was named for  Maj. Gen. William R. Shafter (1835-1906), who led the U.S. expedition to Cuba in 1898. Tripler Army Medical Center, Fort DeRussy and the U.S. Army Museum in Waikiki are also nearby.

Today, Fort Shafter remains the focal point for command, control and support of Army forces in the dynamic Asia-Pacific region; it supports nearly 19,600 soldiers, civilians, contractors and family members.
