Fort Shafter, HI is the headquarters of the United States Army Pacific. Located in Honolulu, next to Tripler Army Medical Center, Fort Shafter is home to U.S. Army Pacific and Pacific Ocean Division, Army Corps of Engineers. Honolulu is where the timeless radiance of the islands meets the modern luxuries of today. Residents can hike down a lush mountainside, just minutes away from a soaring cityscape or feast at a luau under the stars one night, and dine at a five-star restaurant another. Located on Oahu, Honolulu is home to the majority of the state's diverse population. Residents enjoy extensive shopping, medical, continuing education, and year-round recreation opportunities. Other nearby places of interest include Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor, and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial and other WWII historical sites.

The rental market is also very high, as are vehicle operating costs. Before deciding to relocate to the Islands, you should thoroughly research the housing options and costs. https://www.garrison.hawaii.army.mil/
