Located on the eastern portion of the Mokapu Peninsula in Honolulu County, Ohau Island, Hawaii. Named Fort Hase in 1942, after Major General William F. Hase, a Chief of Coast Artillery (1934-1935).

World War II (1941-1945)

Part of the Harbor Defense of Kaneohe Bay.

President Woodrow Wilson originally designated 322 acres of Mokapu Peninsula on Ohau Island as Kuwaahoe Military Reservation in 1918. The Navy established a small seaplane base there as Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay in 1939. The coast artillery moved onto the reservation in 1941 and the portion of the reservation occupied by the Coast Artillery became Fort Hase in 1942.
