    I've heard that Hawaii hates white people, not sure on the validity of that though. And I've heard it's expensive.

    But the Asian guy in my division says he loved it, but he's also not white.

    Its great to live here. Not too bad on whites as long as your not a douchebag. For some reason being active duty army tends to suck because most units here ar the suck.

    when people get to the island they tend to forget they are soldiers. sometimes it is ok. it may have just been my units and my friends also. however i was there from 97 to 01. might be different but my friends don't think it is any better.

    I was stationed in Pearl Harbor, I'm ex Navy, but I loved living in Hawaii. The novelty wears off after a while though. Sure there's plenty to do, but once the reality that you're living on an island with no real escape hits you things change a little. You quickly realize that visiting family or friends back home is no longer a weekend thing and that it's going to cost you considerably more money to do so:o.

    I loved the place and would love to go back to be honest, but just be aware that you really are out in the middle of nowhere basically...a civilized nowhere, but nowhere none the less.

    the Hawaiians are just like any other local groups. If you're in the wrong spot you're going to get fucked with. Some people dislike Haole's, but don't be stupid and think that in your first week on the island you're gonna go up to North Shore and jump in the pipeline with the big dogs. You're an outsider and just like any other local economy/culture you need to work your way in.

    Hawaii is a unique situation it's considered Overseas for some things, but not for others. The Hawaiians are very steeped in culture and it would behoove you to learn some of that culture. They are a very beautiful people and are great to hang out with and know once you get to know them. One of my best dive buddies while I was out there was a local Sherrif:o.

    Just like being stationed anywhere else overseas remember to respect the local customs and learn your way around and you'll be much better. Don't be the douche canoe that thinks he's hotshit and don't refer to the Mainland as "Back in the States":o. Hawaii is a State you never left the States:o.
