Who all benefits from the Military being here in Guam? We all do! I'm all for it! Just think if no Military was here, what would the economy be like? Life would change drastically. Who is the #1 employer here on Guam??? The Military!!! Thank all who wear the uniform!

though we do have more protection, it just makes us an even larger target. they wanna build so manythings, they wanna take away our mt lamalam and use it to test their bombs. what is that about. that is a holy site for us. there are gonna be so many people here on guam, more people are coming, there will be more problems, guam will be crouded, sites destroyed, fights between locals and others. they will come in and just take over our whole island. what about the locals? the kids? they arent gonna be able to see exactly what their culture is all about. they wont be able to find jobs for themselves, because all the jobs are gonna go to those in the millitary families, life will be so hard, families will be torn apart, land will be taken away, we will be treated like we dont beong in our own idland. how terrible is that!?! what are we gonna do? how are we gonna save our island from becoming a concrete jungle, an nothing but a base.? there are people who just see our island as nothing but a base. and what if they build all that stuff, then they have to relocate again? then there will just be us and large good for nothing buildings, it will be wasted land, ghost town...you name it. people are already getting thrown out of thir own land. i hate it!
