Cemetery Overview
The exact year of installation of the Schofield Barracks Cemetery is not known; although, it was probably established in 1909 as part of the initial development of Schofield Barracks. The earliest identifiable interment in the cemetery is dated from 1912. The cemetery contains graves of soldiers, dependents, civilian employees, Italian prisoners of war, unknowns, and executed military criminals, all of whom contribute to the Post’s history. Many of the military casualties from the Post and surrounding areas from the December 7, 1941 attack on Hawaii were initially buried at the Post cemetery. When the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl was established in 1949, many of these service members were moved there.  


One Cemetery Responsible Official from Schofield Barracks provides oversight and administrative support for all cemetery operations. Grounds maintenance for the cemetery is cared for by the Schofield Barracks Directorate of Public Works. The Cemetery falls under the responsibility of the Schofield Barracks Garrison Command and the U.S. Army's Installation Management Command (IMCOM).
