Guam - U.S. Naval Base Guam Commanding Officer Captain Richard Wood II spoke before the Rotary Club of Tumon Bay this afternoon. Wood touched on the many things his command, as well as the naval base community has accomplished in the past year since he took the helm. While he says most the future plans specifically for the Marine relocation is still up in the air, he does say the Navy anticipates some major improvements.

"We have a lot of investment going on to sustain the current wharf facilities and structures we have on the Naval Base both at the Apra Harbor and up at the Naval Magazine and NCTS, so there is a lot of investment going on that is not buildup-related," he stated.

Wood did not speak about the specifics of the pending projects.
