Guam - For the next month Marine Group-12, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, and the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Unit will be participating in Island Fury. 1st Marine Aircraft Wing commanding general Major General Christopher Owens says Guam's location in the Pacific offers wide open range areas for the air-to-ground exercise, which is not doable at their principle base in Iwakuni, Japan.

He told KUAM News, "This exercise gives us the opportunity to take advantage of some really great training area some really great ranges in the Marianas and it also gets us away from our homebase. It gives us a chance to practice picking up and moving quickly to go somewhere our forces are needed."

Island Fury follows the recently completed the Valiant Shield Exercise conducted last month and preceds Forager Fury, set to start at the end of November through early-December.

Guam residents can still expect some air activity but less than what occurred during Valiant Shield.
