Hawaii is a temporary or long-term home for over 300,000 military personnel and their families – and maybe you are lucky enough to have been assigned to work or live in one of these military installations in Hawaii. REAL is happy to provide more information and answer some of the commonly asked questions about Hawaii’s military bases.

Which military branches are in Hawaii?

Every branch of the military is represented in Hawaii, including the army, navy, air force, coast guard, and marines.

What percentage of Hawaii’s population is military?

According to the Hawaii Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism, about 3.6% of Hawaii’s population was in the armed forced in July 2016.

How much money does the military generate for the state of Hawaii?

After tourism, military is the second largest industry in Hawaii, so military members are welcomed to the islands. The military presence in Hawaii generates nearly $15 billion for Hawaii’s economy and adds around 102,000 jobs for Hawaii residents, or civilians, according to the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce.

What are the military installations in Hawaii?

Technically there are 11 bases across Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. However, there are some other stations and military buildings that also play important roles in Hawaii’s military presences. Here is more information on fourteen bases and stations located on the Hawaiian Islands:

Pacific Military Range Facility (PMRF) Barking Sands, Kauai

Located on the “Garden Isle” of Kauai, PMRF supports a variety of training exercises and developmental tests involving space, air, surface, and sub-surface units.

PMRF is the world's largest instrumented, multi-dimensional testing and training missile range. It is located near the local neighborhoods of Kekaha and Waimea.

PMRF also offers 26 beach cottages on a peaceful, picturesque 7.5 miles of beach. With views of Niihau and humpback whales, PMRF has been rumored to be the best kept secret in the Navy.

Aliamanu Military Reservation

The Aliamanu Military Reservation (AMR) is located inside a volcanic crater.

Today, Aliamanu housing is filled with plenty to do, including swimming the pool, working out in the fitness center, attending the chapel, or signing your children up for fun classes. AMR is near the local neighborhoods of Salt Lake, Red Hill, and Foster Village.
