Military units are scheduled to conduct various types of training at Pōhakuloa Training Area in October 2017 that may be heard or observed by the surrounding communities.

This monthly schedule is produced to alert neighbors of upcoming training activities that are louder in nature and may be heard or noticed outside the military installation.

This information is provided for general awareness and may not include all training activity; training times and dates are subject to change or cancellation, sometimes with little or no notice.

  • Oct. 1–15 (Marines): Artillery live-fire training
  • Oct. 2–22 (Army): Aviation support training
  • Oct. 18–31 (Marines): Mortar training

The military in Hawai‘i appreciates the understanding and continued support of its local military training.

While sometimes loud, the sounds and sights of training demonstrate how the military ensures that its
service members are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely.


To report concerns related to noise or training, contact the PTA Public Affairs Officer Eric Hamilton
at (808) 969-1966 or [email protected].
