Guam - The upcoming military buildup was one of the main topics of discussion during today's Rotary Club meeting this afternoon. Dr. John Peterson, director of the Micronesian Area Research Center, and Dr. Fred Schumann, assistant professor at the University of Guam, gave a presentation on important information they gathered from a research symposium in Okinawa this past February.
Schumann believes that it is important to share what they learned so that people are aware of some of the similarities and differences dealing with the military relocation.
Schumann said, "I think if there's any one message that I have or that Dr. Peterson may have is that we really need to be proactive when it comes to heritage preservation, we can't just let things happen. We need to be involved and become better educated about this relocation process."
