In case you hadn’t noticed, the Military is a big presence here in Hawaii. It is a major factor in our economy right up there with tourism as far as bringing dollars into the state. But beyond the dollar $igns, the Military is people.
On Oahu alone we have Hickam Air Force Base, Kaneohe Marine Base, Pearl Harbor Naval Base, the Tripler Army Medical Center, Wheeler Air Field, and other smaller installations. It’s estimated that 1 in 9 are military-related residents, so that is a lot of people contributing to our population!
So when I get a chance to go on a base, I’d like you to join me crusin’!
