HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Joint base Pearl Harbor-Hickam has reached its "full operational capability."

On Friday morning at 9:00, there will be a ceremony marking the milestone.

In 2005, the Base Realignment Commission identified 26 U.S. military bases across the world that should be merged.

Naval Station Pearl Harbor and Hickam Air Force Base began the transition in January of this year.
