  11. Anyone have information as to what the upper Waiawa Military Reservation was used for by the Army in WWII? The site is now the "Waiawa Correctional Facility" run by state corrections. Also, any idea what the storage bunkers were used for that are located near the Waiawa Stream? Any help, photos, etc. will be appreciated. Kaneoheboy
  12. Thankk\s BigMoose, it was found at the site of a WW2 defensive position on a hillside near an OP and other rifle pits. BAR makes good sense for the location.
