Established in 1908 as a base for the U.S. Army's Pearl Harbor mobile defense, Schofield Barracks is now home to the 25th Infantry Division. The barracks lie in the foothills of the Waianae mountain range, 20 miles northwest of Honolulu. The area's proximity to plentiful amenities and popular attractions, along with reduced housing costs for military personnel, increase Schofield Barracks' popularity as a place to call home.
