The article reports on the implications of the 2006 agreement between the U.S. and Japan to shift 8,000 U.S. Marines from bases in Japan to Guam by 2014 for some units of the Marine Corps. The move is accelerating the return to prominence of Guam in the U.S. defense posture. According to Gary A. Engle, former commander of the Pacific Division of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, the advent of the Marines creates the opportunity for forces on Guam to be a model of jointness.
