DAVE Owen and Steve Stinnette, in Phoenix for a couple of days before heading back to Guam, came over for lunch today, along with Matt Augee (who took the picture). Dave and Steve are on the last leg of their five week mainland recruiting and fundraising excursion before returning to PIU on Guam. We ate sandwiches and a good time was had by all. They leave for Guam on Saturday.

THE Japanese government is trying to get the US to move a Marine airbase off Okinawa to either Iwo To (Iwo Jima) or Guam. The US is already in the process of moving 8,000 Marines and dependents to Guam. I don't think Guam would be too happy with that idea right now. They're already nervous about the impact of the 8,000 Marines. How about Saipan? They could use an economic boost. ~ link
