An Air Force explosive ordnance disposal team removed what’s believed to be a World War-II era projectile from a residential area in Dededo, Guam, Andersen Air Force Base officials said Wednesday.

Two airmen from the 36th Civil Engineer Squadron’s EOD flight responded to the area a few miles from the base Wednesday morning, said Tech. Sgt. Jeff Capenos. An islander reportedly found the ordnance and called Guam police, according to Guam’s Pacific Daily News.

Capenos said the 5-inch projectile was still intact but was corroded beyond recognition. It was transported back to a munitions storage bay on base, where it will remain until an EOD team disposes of it, Capenos said.
