The U.S. Army Pacific will host an annual expeditionary training event later this month in Guam and the Republic of Palau.
The training exercise will consist of a command post exercise, air and sea deployments of military equipment, beach landings, live-fire exercises, and airborne operations to further enhance readiness and demonstrate the military’s full commitment to the security and stability of this region.
Residents are advised they may see or hear increased ground and road activity over the next month, as a result of the exercise.
Exercise participants in Guam will reside at U.S. Naval Base Guam facilities and in a tent camp on Andersen Air Force Base (AFB) for the duration of the training when not involved in exercise-related operations outside of the installations. All COVID-19 mitigations will be strictly enforced in accordance with military and government of Guam public health pandemic policies.
Base patrons both on NBG and Andersen AFB should expect increased utilization of facilities to include base exchanges, commissaries, and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR). Additionally, motorists are reminded to practice caution due to an increase in pedestrians on the bases.
The U.S. Army, U.S. Army Pacific, and America’s First Corps are fully committed to conducting realistic training to ensure troops are ready and prepared to execute multi-domain operations to support a free and open Indo-Pacific.
