Guam - While a delegation of local policymakers to open the lines of communication with the federal government on the relocation of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam, chairperson on the Legislative Committee on Military Buildup Senator Judi Guthertz says the military's silence is deafening.  The Democrat lawmaker has been waiting on Department of Defense officials to respond to her letters that seek an answer from the military about whether they intend to utilize government and private land for the buildup.

In a letter to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, Guthertz questioned how long it should take for a decision to be made and asked Mabus to keep with President Barack Obama's commitment to provide more communication with the people of Guam.
