WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD — Buoyed by a historical past of more than 100 years, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii leadership and community members moved confidently into the future while dedicating new and renovated barracks and child care facilities, all while continuing to gather environmental accolades during 2012.
The Army’s history in Hawaii was highlighted through new museum exhibits and a year of remembrances, including Dec. 7, 1941, through the eyes of those who survived that fateful day.

The continued growth of USAG-HI facilities featured dedications beginning with the new $29 million Schofield Barracks enlisted personnel housing project in January and culminating with the Bowen Child Development Center and new Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Outdoor Recreation Center, both in November.
