FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii - General Vincent K. Brooks, commanding general, U.S.
Army Pacific, conducted an aerial reconnaissance of Hawaii Army facilities
across the island of Oahu July 19. Brooks recently assumed command of USARPAC, so the visit enabled him to
meet and greet Soldiers of Hawaii while simultaneously familiarizing himself
via a literal bird's eye view. He was joined by Maj. Gen. Kurt Fuller, 25th
Infantry Division commanding general. The two senior leaders visited
facilities and Soldiers at Schofield Barracks, the Lightning Academy, and
other Army training areas. Pictured here, Brooks flies past Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam in a UH-60 Blackhawk. (photos by Sgt. 1st Class Crista Mary Mack, U.S. Army Pacific)
