Guam - Ten acres of land once condemned by the U.S. military after World War II has been returned to original landowners. Abeline Certeza Guerrero and her family members attended a deed signing ceremony this morning as Governor Eddie Calvo officially gave the Piti property back to the family. 

Guerrero says the property originally belonged to her grandparents, saying, "I get excited but right now I really don't know what to do, I never thought its going to be like this living all this time, it's just too bad my grandparents are not here to see it but I'm really happy about it."

In 2002 the Navy returned the property to the government. Guerrero says the family will keep the land to pass onto future generations.
