Army to hold community listening sessions Jan. 27, 28

News Release from Public Affairs Office, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii & U.S. Army Hawaii

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii (Jan. 22, 2015) - The Army is conducting two listening sessions in Hawaii this month to hear from communities about how potential troop reductions and restructuring could impact them.

Army leaders will begin the sessions with a short overview of the reduction and restructuring process. Afterwards, community will have an opportunity to provide input on how a potential reduction of up to 19,800 Army Soldiers and civilian employees in Hawaii could affect them.

The listening sessions will be held as follows:

Jan. 27, 2015, 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Hale Koa Hotel, DeRussy Hall, 2055 Kalia Road, Waikiki

*Parking is $5 with validation

Jan. 28, 2015, 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Leilehua High School, Cafeteria, 1515 California Ave., Wahiawa

*Parking is free

Both sessions will be hosted by Department of the Army leaders from Washington, D.C., and Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn, commander, U.S. Army Hawaii.

No stationing decisions have been made yet; however, Army leaders anticipate that an overall reduction of Soldiers will impact most every Army post nationwide.

In November 2014, the Army completed an analysis of environmental impacts of potential force reductions on communities surrounding 30 Army installations, to include Fort Shafter and Schofield Barracks. The results are published in the "2014 Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Structure Realignment," which can be found online at:
