Guam - International Group president Peter Sgro says he is finalizing the list of people to serve on his Veterans Affairs Health Care Council. Sgro is proposing to build a new veterans hospital on Guam that already has an investor committing up to $100,000. Sgro says the 22-member council will be composed of people from various industries with experience in veterans affairs including doctors, financial advisors, engineers, architects, psychiatrists and psychologists. The council will be in charge of gathering information on veteran health related issues and putting together a master plan for the project. Sgro adds in early November he will be meeting with health care representatives from the VA in Honolulu to make a presentation on the project.
