U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper

Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark T. Esper will be coming to Guam next week.

Military officials say Esper will begin his travels first with a stop in Colorado Springs, Colorado Friday, where he will attend the change of command ceremonies for United States Northern Command and United States Space Command.

The next day, he will travel to Nevada to visit the Nellis Air Force Base test and training range and meet with U.S. Air Force personnel.

Next week, Secretary Esper will travel to the Indo-Pacific region, visiting Hawaii, Palau and Guam.

On this trip he will conduct meetings with military leaders, local officials and foreign partners; visit with our forces deployed through the region; and participate in commemorative events marking the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II.

It’s unclear if Governor Lou Leon Guerrero or any official from Adelup will be meeting with the Secretary, as the Governor and Lt. Governor Joshua Tenorio remain in isolation recovering from COVID-19.

The military said during this trip, Esper will reinforce the United States’ vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific comprised of nations that adhere to the international rules-based order that was established 75 years ago in the wake of the allied victory in World War II.
