298th Regiment - Regional Training Institute
The 298th Regiment, RTI, previously known as the Hawaii Military Academy (Detachment 2, Headquarters, State Area Command). The regimental headquarters and the 1st and 2nd Battalions are located at Bellows Air Force Station in Waimanalo and the Ordnance Training Battalion (OTB) is located at the Regional Training Site Maintenance (RTSM) in Pearl City.
The regiment is an extension of the Training and Doctrine Command's (TRADOC) Total Army School System. The RTI is accredited by various agencies including TRADOC, the Sergeants Major Academy, the active duty proponent schools for the various military occupational specialties, and the U.S. Army Ordnance Center. The battalions provide training primarily for the Hawaii Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve and active Army soldiers from the Pacific Region. The training of active duty soldiers at the RTI and OTB saves the active component units in the Pacific region valuable training dollars.
