SCHOFIELD BARRACKS – U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii will host a July Fourth celebration, here, for military members and their families to pay tribute to their contributions in the defense of freedom.

“We owe our service members a debt of gratitude for their sacrifices, and we’re glad the majority are now home to enjoy the freedoms they’ve fought for, and celebrate together with their families,” said Col. Richard Fromm, commander, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii.

Because of Schofield’s field capacity and safety concerns, the event will be open to Department of Defense ID cardholders. This includes include military members, their families, military retirees, DoD civilian employees, and their authorized guests.

“Ensuring safety and security on our installations is always the Army’s top priority, and maintaining the safety, capacity and security at a large event like this is absolutely critical,” Fromm said.
