To the families and friends of Soldiers in the 25th Infantry Division and U.S. Army Hawaii:
Many of you have recently seen news of volcanic activity and earthquakes occurring on Hawaii Island (Big Island).
While the permanent home of the 25th Infantry Division and other U.S. Army Hawaii units is on the island of Oahu, where there is no volcanic activity. Soldiers in these units routinely travel to Hawaii Island, and some are there now conducting regularly scheduled training. We want to assure everyone that our Soldiers on Hawaii Island are safe. They continue to train at a location that is not threatened by the ongoing volcanic activity.

      Hello, Christiano — I don’t know about what you are referring. What September reunion? Also, we no longer print the Hawaii Army Weekly newspaper. Information is available online at http://www.hawaiiarmyweekly.com. Simply “search” on the homepage. HAW Staff.
