Military units are scheduled to conduct various types of exercises at the Pohakula Training Area in June that may be heard or observed by the surrounding communities.

This monthly schedule is produced to inform 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; times and dates are subject to change.

Training is scheduled during the following dates:

  • June 7–26: Hawaii Army National Guard, annual training; primarily small arms fire, with limited artillery training.

Convoys are scheduled during the following dates:

  • June 7, Kawaihae Harbor to PTA, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • June 9, Kawaihae Harbor to PTA, at 8 a.m. and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The military appreciates the understanding and continued support of local Hawai‘i Island communities.


While sometimes loud, this training is critical to ensure that military units and service members are ready to accomplish their mission and return home safely.
