Territory Hawaii - before December 7th 1941
"The last night of sleep"
The islands of Hawaii lay situated 2,000 miles southwest of the North American mainland in the center of
the Pacific Ocean. The Kingdom of Hawaii was sovereign from 1810 through 1893 until annexed by the
United States of America as the Territory of Hawaii.
The eight main islands of Hawaii: Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui and the "Big
Island" of Hawaii were home to the United States Pacific Fleet, Hawaiian Division and Pacific Army Air
Corps.
During the 1920s and 1930s Oahu Hawaii blossomed with military activity. Sailors and Marines trained and
sailed from the Naval port of Pearl Harbor and flew sea planes from Ford Island, Ewa and Kaneohe Bay.
Airman maintained and flew aircraft from Hickam, Wheeler and Bellows Field. Artillery and Infantrymen of
Schofield Barracks trained in gunnery.
New state of the art technology was introduced in Hawaii to include the B-17 Flying Fortress and the
Opana Radar Station.
For most Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen, Hawaii was a Pacific duty station of paradise.
On a quiet Sunday Morning on December 7th 1941 it all changed.
