So I found out last month that I will be heading to Schofield Barracks, HI at the end of the year. I know it's going to be an amazing experience and everything. I just want to know how are the barracks there? I know those barracks were quite old and not the best, however I seen that they were getting the barracks redone to make it 1/1 housing.

I spent three years at Schofield and lived in B quad Barracks. The exteriors are kept the same way they were back in 1941, complete with bullet pock marks in the walls from the Japanese Zeroes. As far as the interiors go, I couldn't tell you, but I will say that some of the 'Newer' barracks were being built when I left in 2000.

Have a great time there and make sure you get out to the North Shore for some fantastic snorkeling!

It depends on what unit you're being assigned to. Some were built within the past 8 years or so and are the 1+1 standard. There's a lot of construction that was going on when I left last July on the old buildings. They were completely gutting out the inside and remodeling them into the 1+1 standard while leaving the buildings infrastructure and outward appearance in tact. Do you have a unit of assignment? Have fun, get out and explore!!! I had the most amazing time there and hope to go back. Especially because a year of my 3 was spent in Afghanistan unfortunately.

The only clue I have about what unit I'm going to is one of my forms in the levy packet, it said 2-25th so based on assumptions, I'll be going to 2 BDE. That's all I know for now. Thanks for the info SSG.
