Military Section

Because of Hawaii’s location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the United States established a strong military presence there. In the first decade of the 1900s, the United States built infantry and naval bases including Fort Shafter (1907), Schofield Barracks (1908), and Fort Ruger (1909).

With the increase in military personnel in Hawaii, from 1916 to 1917, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin ran the “Army & Navy” section about twice a week (Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays). The section would include local, national, and international military news and columns reporting base news (“Fort Shafter Notes” and “DeRussey Notes”).
