Now on PBS: The Marines are Landing

Watch this video posted on PBS’ Now program:

The Marines are Landing: Why are we sending thousands of Marines to Guam?

Programming Note:

Why are we sending thousands of military personnel to Guam? Next on “NOW.” Over the next five years, as many as 30,000 service members and their families will descend on the small island of Guam, nearly tripling its presence there. It’s part of a larger agreement that the US signed with Japan to realign American forces in the Pacific. But how will this multibillion-dollar move impact the lives and lifestyle of Guam’s nearly 180,000 residents? On Friday, December 11, at 8:30 PM (check local listings), “NOW” on PBS travels to the US territory of Guam to find out whether their environment and infrastructure can support such a large and quick infusion of people, and why the buildup is vital to our national security.
