3. QUARTERS 5
Completed in 1909, Quarters 5 originally served as the Post Commander’s quarters. The first general officer to occupy Quarters 5 was probably Major General Morton, who served as the Commander of the Hawaiian Department from 13 July 1919 to 4 August 1921. Lieutenant General Walter Short was living in the house on 7 December 1941. He was preparing to go to a Sunday morning golf game with Admiral Husband Kimmel when he received the news that Oahu was under Japanese attack. Two Army Chiefs of Staff—General Charles Summerall and General Frederick Weyand—have lived in the quarters. Today, Quarters 5 serves as the residence of Lieutenant General Benjamin R. Mixon, the Commanding General of U.S. Army, Pacific.
USARPAC postures and prepares the force for unified land operations, responds to threats, sustains and protects the force, and builds military relationships that develop partner defense capacity in order to contribute to a stable and secure U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility.
