“The military appreciates the understanding and continued support of the local community,” the US Army wrote in a statement. “While the convoys can create delays among motorists due to the reduced speed, it is critical all our troops return home safely.”

To report concerns related to noise or training, contact US Army Garrison at Pōhakuloa at (808) 656-3160 or [email protected]. Concerns are responded to during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 am-4 pm.
