Some interesting facts on army units stationed in Hawaii. Some big guns that were built for island defence but were soon realized as outdated and useless. We sent a rainy morning there and it was well worth it. Close and walkable from the beach.

We have walked by the Army Museum for years, but this year we took the time to go through it. Take a sweater, as it's air conditioned but very worth while to view US's history. Very well done!

This is a terrific museum that should be on any tourist's list of sites. Emphasizes Hawaii, of course, but captures the story of wars in the Pacific excellent. Terrific curators have done an amazing job.

It is on Fort Derussy which is where Hale Koa is located. It's free and totally worth visiting. It gives the US Army Perspective of the Islands and how Fort Derussy became a RR stop for soliders fighting in war.
