About Kaneohe Marine Base Real Estate

Kaneohe Marine Base is located between two of the most substantial windward communities Kaneohe and Kailua, it occupies the whole of the Mokapu Peninsula and is accessible at the east end of Interstate H-3 on the Windward side of the island 12 miles northeast of the capital. The 322 acres of area on the Mokapu Peninsula was originally designated by President Woodrow Wilson for military operation. After undergoing series of transformations of occupancy by varying military personnel the former Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay which was a small Naval Air Station with only 3 patrol squadrons is now the Marine Corps Base Hawaii also named Fort Hase in 1942 after military artillery moved to the station preceding the events of Pearl Harbor. Kaneohe Marine Base (Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay) was the first location struck by Japanese military pilots on December 7, 1941 just 9 minutes prior to Pearl Harbor, resulting in 20 fatal injuries. After the naval aviation relocated to Barbers Point in the early 1950’s the Marines settle into the base and today the Puula Range, Pearl City Warehouse and Annex are joined creating one Command. The base is home to Marines, Sailors, and their supporting members including civilian employees.
