“Lokahi i ka Lanakila” - United in Victory

The 5th BCD-Hawai’i is proud to be an organization that is family oriented and believes and acts on the axiom "Taking care of Soldiers".

We are a team of well-disciplined, mission focused Soldiers who are committed to excellence. You will be proud to serve in the 5th BCD-Hawai’i. We promote camaraderie and Esprit de Corps by integrating Soldiers and family members into our truly joint nature, hence the phrase "Lokahi i ka Lanakila" meaning “United in Victory.”



As the senior liaison unit for the Commander, United States Army Forces (ARFOR) operating in the Pacific theater to the Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) for the United States Pacific Command, the 5th BCD facilitates the integration of air power with ARFOR ground operations through the coordination of air support and the exchange of operational and intelligence information. The BCD ensures that the JFACC and 613th Air Operations Center (AOC), Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, are aware of the ARFOR Commander's intent, scheme of maneuver, and requirements for air support.
