Schofield Barracks was established in 1908 as the base for Oahu’s mobile defense troops. Located on the Leilehua Plain between the Waianae Mountains and the Koolau range, this site was ideal for its strategic central location. Schofield Barracks maintains historic significance in the areas of military history and architecture. Schofield Barracks played a primary role in training troops for the Pacific Theater of Operations in WWII, as well as the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts. Additionally, the physical development of the permanent post typifies early Army base planning.
