Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Gov. Josh Tenorio, accompanied by Joint Region Marianas Commander Rear. Adm. Shoshana Chatfield, toured military installations on the island May 6.

"Our military members, Department of Defense employees and families are proud to serve on Guam and to be part of the Guam community," said Chatfield. "It is very important that we engage regularly with our partners from the government of Guam and ensure they can see our day-to-day activities firsthand. "Our military forces on Guam operate and maintain robust capabilities that contribute to the defense of Guam and are a critical part of ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific. As members of the island community, we also take our role as stewards of important environmental and cultural resources seriously and we welcome this opportunity to share our efforts with Gov. Leon Guerrero and her team, said Chatfield.&
