"ALOHA!" Congratulations on your assignment to the 30th Signal Battalion I Network Enterprise Center (NEC) and the "Voice of Hawai'i." We would like to officially welcome you to paradise. The 30th Signal Battalion has a proud, impressive, and rich history. We look forward to your contributions as it continues to grow. Your assignment to this unit will no doubt prove to be both professionally rewarding and personally enjoyable.
The Battalion Headquarters is located on Wheeler Army Airfield, "next door" to Schofield Barracks, and near the small town of Wahiawa. It was a primary target and site of the first attack on 7 December 1941, leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Additionally, and because of its elevation, some of the coolest temperatures on the island of Oahu can be found here. Hawaii has a diverse population and there are many ways to appreciate and experience the beauty of the island, its people, and its history.
Our mission is to operate, maintain, and defend the Pacific LandWarNet communications systems, networks, enterprise services, and provide information services to support military forces, intergovernmental, interagency, and civil authorities throughout Hawaii to enable mission command and information superiority. The Command's vision is to support United States Army Pacific (USARPAC) communications requirements by building and maintaining a cohesive, trained, efficient, and effective civilian-military team of professionals focused on providing world-class network services and technical support of a modernized installation campus area network.
Through tough, demanding, and challenging training - we will remain ready to execute our mission. You should arrive in good physical condition and current with all mandatory training requirements. To maintain standards and accomplish our mission; we are uniformly dedicated to readiness, selfless service, and family preparedness.
Once again, Welcome to the "Voice of Hawai'i!" We look forward to meeting you and your contributions to TEAM 30th and the Warfighters of the Pacific Theater.
