As part of its 2020 force structure realignment, the Army is considering a proposal that would eliminate 19,800 soldiers and civilians:
-Schofield Barracks - 16,606
-Fort Shafter - 3,786
In addition to the workers, Hawaii would lose more than 30,000 family members. The total is about 5% of Honolulu’s total population.
The Army supports our economy in many ways such as creating jobs in our local communities and supporting our local businesses. Many of the members are not only our friends and neighbors, they are our family members. Support our heroes! Please sign the petition here or download the paper petition at keephawaiisheroes.org.
