The public is advised of convoy operations scheduled to support Exercise Forager Pacific 2021 from July 12-14 between 10 p.m. – 6 a.m.

The movement consists of numerous military vehicles transiting from Naval Base Guam to Andersen Air Force Base during non-peak traffic hours in order to minimize congestion on Guam’s roadways.

Additionally, the U.S. Army has been in close coordination with the Guam Police Department and the Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense to ensure the safety of Guam’s motorists and those participating in the operations.

Exercise Forager 21 is a U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) exercise designed to test and refine the Theater Army’s ability to flow land power forces into the theater, execute command and control of those forces, and effectively employ them in support of our allies, partners, and national security objectives in the region.
