    That harbor is very important to supporting military operations on the Big Island. Most all of the army equipment comes through their on US Army logistical vessels or US Navy landing craft for training operations at Pohokaloa Training Area. I spent quite a bit of time there in the mid-to-late 2000’s on annual (at a minimum) training rotations. There is a small shack and fenced area adjacent to the south part of the harbor where military personnel will stay before and after training events to on-load and off-load vehicles and equipment.
