Guam - Although Rear Admiral Peter Gumataotao, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Korea will not be able to travel to Guam to deliver a keynote speech at the University of Guam's graduation ceremony Sunday, UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood says he will record a speech to share during the ceremony. 

Gumataotao is the first native son of Guam who has become a flag officer in the U.S. Navy. Underwood says because of the crisis with North Korea threatening South Korea, Gumataotao is unable to make it. "He thinks it's very important and we think it's very important. He will be providing a video message. and the significance with this is that not only has he achieved great things, but hopefully be an inspirational voice to our young people but also connects the dots to what kind of environment we live in with this part of the world."

The commencement ceremony is scheduled for this Sunday beginning at 2pm at the UOG Field House in Mangilao.
