    • Yvette you would want to check into the Mililani area. You can use the Army Referral Housing Network Site or …Mililani is a very nice town and very close to Schofield. You can also look into Kapolei and Waikele.

If he does find an apartment that is not furnished, where can he buy furniture at a reasonable price? What area are safer than others to live also?
