waikele Marine Barracks.
Waikele was the Naval mmunition depot on the island of Oahu Hawaii. Located just outside the town of Waipahu... Sadly it was closed in about 1990 or 1999 Im not sure which .. It was a highly secure installation operated by the Navy and guarded by Marines. Actually It was not with any Marine organization such as the first marine division, it was just known as guard detachment NAD Waikele, Other parts were the headquarters at lualualay(sp) and west loch Pearl Harbor.

The parent command, if you will, was Marine Barracks Pearl Harbor. It was already shut down when I went to barracks duty in 89.

I was at Waikele from 63-65. Capt. Horner and Gunny Allison were there then. We have had 3 Waikele reunions in the past 5 years. 2 in SD, and 1 in Branson, Mo.
