Thanks Dirk,

 

These have been from files I had on hand, much more yet to scan over time.

 

The photos on this thread are a particular slice of time between the withdrawl of troops committed to the Philippine Insurection and America's entry into the Great War.  It was during this period that Hawaii was garrisoned and the construction of Fort Shafter, Schofield Barracks and coastal fortifications was accelerated.  Schofield Barracks was envisioned as a cantonment for seven full regiments and supporting units - the future Hawaiian Division, but in this interim period the Hawaiian Department on Oahu was a posting for veteran US Cavalry and infantry units who would never serve with the Division formed in 1921.

One major difference between the Department and Division era units is (or the lack of) motorization.  The Hawaiian Division was primarily motorized whereas the Department units were not.

 

An exception is Ambulance Company No. 9, Schofield Barracks, H.T.
