12. FAVREAU FIELD
On 7 December 1941, Fort Shafter escaped most of the horror experienced at Pearl Harbor, Hickam, Wheeler, and other military installations on Oahu. Although the post went through that day relatively unscathed (physically at least), one building—then serving as a barracks for the 64th Coast Artillery Regiment (AA)—was hit by a five-inch naval anti-aircraft shell. The sports field, marking the spot where the barracks stood, honors the only Fort Shafter casualty of the day, Corporal Arthur A. Favreau of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Nearby stands Favreau Hall, a billets also dedicated to the Soldier’s memory.
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.
