Guam - Senator Ben Pangelinan is expressing concern about the Pagat area and any misconceptions about the military's plans to use the area as a firing range. He wrote a letter to Undersecretary of the Navy Robert Work stating, "The area of Pagat is not confined to the hiking trail leading to the Pagat Cave, rather it extends far beyond that to include the preferred site for the DoD live firing range."
Pangelinan also insists that if the department of defense plans on having the firing range along Route 15, that they move a couple miles up the back road to Andersen Air Force Base and bulldoze the Palm Tree Golf Course to do so.
He is urging the feds to stay within its current footprint in regards to any military buildup activity.
