As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Hawai’i Representative Kai Kahele requested a CODEL visit to Guam to learn more about Pacific Deterrence Initiative investments in Guam.
He also had the opportunity to be briefed by senior military officials on Guam’s evolving role in the Indo-Pacific region, and to meet with Guam Congressman Michael San Nicolas.
“It is always a pleasure for the people of Guam to receive a Member of Congress on our island who is seeking to better understand the needs of our community,” said Congressman San Nicolas. “A seasoned public servant like Congressman Kahele has a keen eye for how needs can be solved with policy, and we are so grateful he took the time to visit, listen, and learn how he can help his fellow American islanders,” Congressman San Nicolas added.
“I am grateful Rep. San Nicolas took the time to share his perspective on Guam’s national security and domestic priorities—from missile defense to veterans health care to Supplemental Security Income,” said Congressman Kahele. “I look forward to working closely together in Congress to build a better future for Guam, Hawaiʻi, and the Indo-Pacific region.”
