Schofield Barracks

The US Army barracks were in the middle of Oahu, between the two mountain ranges and close to Wheeler Field, the Army Air Force base. Thus, while not specifically targeted by the Japanese, it received a certain amount of fire. The author James Jones (Jones, James) was here at the time, a twenty-year-old private soldier.
