Guam - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is in the region, but isn't scheduled to stop on Guam. He is currently on his way to Australia but stopped in Hawaii where he participated in a ceremony opening a new memorial for the Vietnam War.  Aboard a military aircraft en route to Perth, Panetta said DOD's strategic rebalance to the Asia-Pacific Region is a long-term effort that is beginning to show tangible progress. A part of that strategy as we've been reporting is the relocation of Marines from Okinawa, Japan to Guam.

In Australia, Panetta will meet up with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The two are attending ministerial consultations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, Panetta said President Barack Obama is expected to visit the region next week.
