Fort Shafter, Hawaii

Talk to me about Hawaii....it is still tentative, but the chance ofus going there is high..I have one friend who is pretty unhappy living off post there, but everyone else has loved living off post (we are def off post people, we probably would have a loooooong wait for onpost anyway, which would mean a school change for my daughter who will be in high school by the time we get there) 

We will be coming from Germany, but will be at a school in GA my DH needs to go to for 9 months between Germany and our move...

  • I miss Hawaii so much! I liked it while living there, but I thought I was so ready to go. Now living in Maryland, I beg my husband to find a way back. We lived in Ewa Beach first, but the drive was so long to Hickam AFB. We then moved on Hickam and fin

  • My husband and I have been here since about August, and it took me a while to get used to here. Actually in still not haha, but it is a very beautiful place to be "forced" to live!
