Guam - The U.S. Navy SEALs in Guam will be getting some company as a unit from the Marine Corps Special Operations Command will be arriving to the territory as part of a series of rotational forces. The MARSOC unit will be integrating with existing special operations trainings and missions occurring in the region and will be co-located with the Naval Special Warfare unit already stationed here. MARSOC public affairs officer Captain Barry Morris says the deployment enables the unit to conduct routine, partner-nation training and other operations throughout the Southeast Asia-Pacific Region. Governor Eddie Calvo comments that Guam is being tapped to play a key role in the re-balancing of military forces in the region. He adds we take this duty very seriously and welcome the Marines to their new home.
