Fort Shafter, outside Honolulu, has been home to the senior Army headquarters in Hawaii for almost a century. Principal tenants include U.S. Army Pacific, the 8th Theater Sustainment Command, the 311th Signal Command, the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, the 9th Mission Support Command (U.S. Army Reserve) and the Army Corps of Engineers – Pacific Ocean Division and Honolulu District.

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.

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