Guam - Despite last week's call by U.S. Senators John McCain, Carl Levin and Jim Webb for the Department of Defense to rethink the plans for the buildup, Governor Eddie Calvo says he's received credible assurances from Undersecretary of the Navy Robert Work that the military buildup is on. The island's chief executive also presented a list of Guam projects for the federal government to fund.

Those projects include a new school, expansion of the Guam Memorial Hospital and other health facilities, 16 new water wells, a central regional public health clinic and new school buses. The DoD is updating the master plan for Guam's military buildup, which will be submitted to Congress.
