Guam - Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz is urging President Barack Obama today to include Guam in his November trip. Cruz sent a letter to the nation's commander in chief requesting that he make time to meet with members of the military and the civilian communities as part of his plans to visit India and Indonesia next month.

The vice-speaker expressed his disappointment that Obama's planned visit earlier this year was canceled and states that a November visit would be timely. He adds that the relocation of Marines from Okinawa to Guam plays a huge importance as to why the President should speak with the people regarding the impacts the buildup will have on the island.
