Kwajalein is an atoll in the Marshall Islands.
Although a restricted US Department of Defense missle research and testing site, and not accessible to the general public, Kwajalein is home to around 1,800 Americans who live and work there. There is a fully functioning community including Bank, post office, shops, schools and a small hospital, as well as buildings and installments to support the US military mission.
Access to the atoll is restricted to active-duty US military personnel and civilian contractors with proper orders, although it is possible to travel there as a dependent of a person in either of these categories.
Continental Airlines operated by Continental Micronesia flies to Chuuk, Guam, Honolulu, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Majurom from the local airfield.
