Training for the month of July will gradually increase following the 4th of July holiday, with several hundred Soldiers and Marines on base. The training includes rifle marksmanship, helicopter gunnery, artillery and mortar gunnery, convoy live-fire, and aviation training.

Due to the increase of training, 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.

Military convoys from Kawaihae to PTA are scheduled 5, 6, and 7 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

the entire staff here, thank you, for your continued support and understanding, and have a

safe weekend.

For more information or questions, call PTA Public Affairs at 808-824-1474.
