Pōhakuloa Training and Convoy Information for August 2020
Published by: HIRSC - Hawaii Island (Hilo) Team
Training for the month of August will involve several hundred Soldiers and Marines on base, and training includes rifle marksmanship, helicopter gunnery, artillery and mortar gunnery, and aviation training. As a reminder, all training in August is previously scheduled training by local units and is not RIMPAC associated.
Residents of Hawaii Island can expect to see or hear military aircraft supporting this
training including Army helicopters, and Marine tilt-rotor aircraft (MV-22) commonly
known as Osprey.
Current military convoys from Kawaihae to PTA are scheduled on 31 July between
8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Convoy leaders are reminded to be on the lookout for several
motorists trailing behind the convoy and to pull over to a safe location in order to allow
residents to pass safely.
On behalf of Lt. Colonel. JR Borce, Commander of Pohakuloa Training Area, and the entire staff here thank you, for your continued support and understanding.
