Wheeler Army Airfield


Established in 1922, the initial air units stationed at Wheeler Field were photo reconnaissance and fighter squadrons. By 1940, the primary units stationed at Wheeler were fighter squadrons, making it a prime target for the Japanese when they attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. Wheeler came under the control of the Air Force in 1947, and was returned to the Army in 1991.

Today Wheeler Army Airfield houses the 25th Infantry Division's Combat Aviation Brigade, as well as various cargo and air ambulance units.
