Guam - Proof that veterans' concerns were heard, the Veterans Affairs Administration is already considering leasing other property for the many needs of thousands of the island's veterans. Concerns have been raised that the newly dedicated Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Agana Heights is too small to accommodate the needs of veterans.

Veterans Affairs Administrator John Unpingco says there are discussions that the feds would pay for commercial space with ample parking lots that would be an off site expansion of the medical clinic. "We're just in the beginning stages of discussing it but I will be pursuing it," he told KUAM News. "And I'm sure they will also but I want them first to get their bearings straight as to what each site has to offer and the commercial sites are still being looked at and considered and eventually we'll get them to get their reports lined up and then we'll begin."
