Ford Island, No Longer for the Military

Hawaii’s location has played an important role for the United States military’s position in the Pacific. Hawaii and the people have always been a very welcoming state but having the land of Hawaii being seen as a commodity for power in the Pacific has caused issues with its native inhabitants. While being good for the country’s strategic interests, it also can serve as a painful reminder of the island’s loss of independence through a hostile takeover.
