Kaneohe Business Group will hear from Marine Corps Base Hawaii’s new commander at its monthly luncheon, set for 11:30 a.m. today (Jan. 28) at Pohai Nani Retirement Community.

Col. Eric W. Schaefer will discuss “how the military perceives the impact of MCBH Kaneohe, on the Windward community, how the community and MCBH can best interact, employment opportunities, base information and what to expect going forward.”

Schaefer’s career has led him to combat missions in Iraq and fleet deployments to the Western Pacific. He earned three advanced degrees in military and strategic studies.

The luncheon runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Pohai Nani’s second-floor meeting room. It’s open to the public, and lunch costs $15. RSVP to Carolyn Nakamura at 479-8905 or email her at cnakamur@goodsam.com.

KBG also welcomes new members into its network to support area commerce and community affairs, such as its signature Windward Ho‘olaulea each fall.
