Hawaii was awesome. I was there 2011-2014. The locals there don't like the military much, but I am white and as long as you gave respect then you got respect. I never had a problem with them and I spear fished many times in Wainee (local only type area). There was so much to do, but I can tell you it is more relaxed Army wise. Great duty station especially for family!
