From the Summary: "The U.S. military is building up forces on the U.S. territory of Guam to maintain deterrence and warfighting capabilities for possible responses to crises and disasters, counter-terrorism, and contingencies in support of South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, or elsewhere in Asia. Guam's role has increased with plans to withdraw some U.S. forces from Japan and South Korea. The purpose of this CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report is to discuss developments and issues in Guam's defense build-up in terms of policy considerations, rather than detailed budgetary issues. This CRS Report will be updated as warranted."
