Guam Buildup Plan due July 11: Guam Gov. Felix P. Camacho tells Stars and Stripes that military officials on the island will submit a wide-ranging plan on the US military buildup on Guam to US Pacific Command on July 11. Camacho’s comment confirms an earlier report that the Joint Guam Military Master Plan—including the transfer of some 8,000 US marines from Okinawa to Guam and permanent basing of unmanned aerial vehicles at Andersen AFB, Guam,—was being fine-tuned last month. Word is that Andersen may also be in store for a unit of tanker aircraft, as well as continuing to serve as a permanent rotation base for US-based bombers and fighters.
