Earth Week spotlight: The Navy knows that being a good environmental steward sometimes means undoing or mitigating damage from mission operations. At US Naval Base Guam, an Apra Harbor wharf improvement project requires the relocation of approximately 4,500 coral colonies with plans to relocate an additional 150,000 coral colonies in the future.

Joint Region Marianas habitat conservation and watershed management activities are helping to reduce erosion and improve water quality. They're also working to grow the population of the endangered Serianthes nelsonii, known as the fire tree. Though endemic to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam’s only mature fire tree is located on Andersen Air Force Base.

Hello sir
Biden needs to address this... This is what Obama and Biden tried to cover up along with the FBI. If anyone ever had to check into the Hospital for hearing high pitched sounds or for hearing voices,now you know. Does everyone see how the FBI is a cancer on America ? In Lehigh County Government they think just like the FBI, if we all stick together nobody is going to do anything , there is too many of us . That's how they think at the FBI , that's how they think at the Pennsylvania State Police and that's how they think in Lehigh County , they could do what they want . My two trials prove that . The Criminal Defense Attorney's went right along w/ that mind set of the FBI , Pennsylvania State Police and Lehigh county Law Enforcement. When you have Judges telling me to report criminal conduct , to say the least , to the media ... and then putting me through two trials trying to cover up their use in Microwave Technology and Remote Neural Monitoring . The FBI controls the Defense Attorney's , the FBI controls the Judges , the FBI controls the media , in this case the FBI even controlled the Jury ... this is what a trial looks like in America ...

Tax season can be an anxious time of year, but it doesn’t have to be if you know where to turn for help. It is also a great opportunity for servicemembers to build up their savings using a portion of their refunds. Servicemembers should know that there are resources available to them for free tax preparation. Read the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s joint blog with the Defense Department’s Office of Financial Readiness to learn more. https://www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/blog/are-you-military-and-getting-ready-do-your-taxes-make-sure-you-know-how-file-free/ If you have particular questions about a financial product or service, reach out to the Office of Servicemember Affairs at the CFPB at [email protected].
My name is Ralph Parrott. I am an old, beat up, soon to be 79 year old retired Navy Captain. I have been staying at Ely Hall across from the Breezy Point Officers Club off and on for over 50 years. Hell, I am old enough to remember when the Conference Room was the Commissioned Officers Mess (Closed). I love the old place and I fully understand the need to have raised the price of suites over the years to the current $93. However, I do not understand why, at this price, the place is steadily degrading despite a wonderful staff. To wit the plaster in the bathroom ceilings is peeling and the carpet in the lobby is worn out and the heating system fans are noisy and on and on. Just some observations from a loyal customer of many years. Surely, you can do better.
The $$$ you saved cancelling the security contract for McGrew Housing in Pearl Harbor paid off... Petty criminals are driving through our neighborhood daily, tossing cars. The word is out, no one is providing (effective) security here any more.
