This may not be the best place to let others know about what is going on here on this beautiful island but if any of you will contact your US congress personnel and get is stopped please do.
The military owns and uses over 1/3rd of the island! Well that may not seem like much but when the island is only 32 miles long and 4 to 9 miles wide depend on where you are that is a lot of land. There is to be a build up of Marines that are being moved off Okinawa soon. I have no problem with the Marines and all they will bring which will be more than 20, 000 people or even more but i do have a problem with the military wanting to turn a historical land mark into a firing range! There is other land they can use. Land that they already have control of but they want Pagat! You can google the name and find out more and you can click on this site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
=C1ISaikzqDk to watch the video!
I have never been to Pagat and because of my knees never will but I do not want it taken away from the rightful owners! The owners do not want to sell but the military made the decision to use this land several years ago and regardless what others have said are adamant about taking it. There is a lawsuit hearing tomorrow Guam time since the military has not listened to the Guam legislature or people.
Watch tie video and see some beautiful land and artifacts.
