The Joint Guam Program Office, the U.S. military’s office in charge of $10.3 billion in buildup on the island, launched a new Web site this week.

The site — www.jgpo.navy.mil — includes updates on plans to move 8,000 U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam in coming years. The site has links to the project’s timeline, environmental requirements, proposed maps and frequently asked questions. Visitors can submit questions to the office, and those that are most common will be answered and posted to the site.

Experts detonate WWII-era ordnance on Guam

No injuries were reported Tuesday after Air Force bomb experts detonated World War II-era ordnance found near Potts Junction, according to an Andersen Air Force Base release.

Guam police and members of the 36th Security Forces Squadron found the five-inch-long projectile and immediately cordoned off the area, according to the release. The 36th Wing explosive ordnance disposal team safely detonated the projectile without incident.

If anyone finds an unexploded device off base, they should call Guam police at 475-8616 or 472-8911.
