in the manual fuze setter of a 3-inch antiaircraft gun M1917M2. A plan for the
defense of the Hawaiian Islands had been set up and joint maneuvers (land, air,
and naval forces) were held periodically to test the various security measures.

INFANTRYMEN DURING A FIELD INSPECTION in the Hawaiian Islands,
January 1941. From 1935 on the U.S. garrison in the Hawaiian Islands was larger
than any other American overseas outpost. However, by 1940 there was a
shortage of modern equipment and trained personnel, and not until February
1941 did troop reinforcements and up-to-date equipment begin to arrive in
Hawaii. The United States was not prepared for war and the men and equipment
did not meet the necessary requirements.
