What is the difference between the Hawaiian Dept. and the MP detachment at Schofield? Also, what does the
"524" represent? I don't recall the MP detachment being the 524th. My barracks was literally less than 100 feet from their AO.

Believe you will find this will be the 524th Military Police Company, and was stationed at Fort Shafter.
The Hawaiian Department, called since 1957, U.S. Army Hawaii, or after 1972 U.S. Army Support Command Hawaii. Your liner is a WWII/1950s liner? Or a Vietnam era type? The old Hawaiian Department and it''s redesignated successors was the theater high command organization in Hawaii and had numerous combat support and support units assigned directly under it. U.S. Army Pacific too, but they cover all the Pacific.
