I joined the Navy to see the world …

A Navy ship heading to Oahu
The military has a significant presence in Hawaii – think Pearl Harbor on Oahu – and the Big Island sees its share of the action. Naval exercises take place offshore and the saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea is home to the Army’s Pohakuloa Training Area. Troops and equipment are landed at the harbor at Kawaihae and the driven the 30 odd miles to the base.

I’ve seen this ship, and ones like it, off the northern tip of the island where they make a course change and head off to Oahu.
