Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo is expressing his disappointment over the Senate's rejection of Guam's efforts to receive war claims. The US gutted the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act from the Omnibus Territories Act which was passed by unanimous consent.

"It's just a continuation of the disappointment of the people of Guam should have as a result of this long perpetual issue that has been not resolved it has been resolved by so many others that we impacted by World War II and again its unfortunate for it appears the Chamorro Guamanians that suffered in World War II still have not been compensated as other Americans," he said.

Calvo says he is hopeful the fight will continue in congress adding this is a bi-partisan issue on Guam. He will continue to support Congresswoman Bordallo to push the matter forward. Bordallo yesterday also expressed extreme disappointment but stated she will continue to find a resolution.
