Quick Facts About Guam

Camp Blaz


The U.S. Marine Corps receives tremendous support from the people and the government of Guam. Both the Governor and the Speaker of the Guam Legislature provide frequent support for the Marine Corps relocation to Guam. In October 2018, the Secretary of the Navy approved on the recommendation of the Commandant of the Marine Corps, that the new Marine Corps installations on Guam be named in honor of the late Brigadier General Vicente "Ben" Tomas Garrido Blaz. Brigadier General Blaz was the first minority general officer in the Marine Corps and remains the highest ranking indigenous CHamoru to have served in the Marine Corps. After retirement he served four terms as Guam's delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives. Brigadier General Blaz was also a survivor of the Japanese occupation of Guam and later commanded 9th Marines, one of the regiments that liberated the island in 1944. Brigadier General Blaz died on 8 January 2014 and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He remains a respected figure in Guam's history to this day.

Marine orps Base Camp Blaz (MCB) Camp Blaz was activated on October 1, 2020. This activation was an administrative action officially marking the initial operational capability (IOC) of the base. This is the first new Marine Corps base activated since March 1, 1952, with the commissioning of what is presently Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia. The Marine Corps plans to hold a formal activation ceremony for its newest base in spring 2021.

The formal establishment of MCB Camp Blaz is a significant milestone of the REALIGNMENT OF FORCES and honors an international agreement with the Government of Japan while securing a Marine Corps posture in the Indo-Pacific region that is geographically distributed and operationally resilient. MCB Camp Blaz will play an essential role in strengthening the Department of Defense’s ability to deter and defend, and is also a testament to the strength of the U.S.-Japan alliance, which is a cornerstone of peace, security, and prosperity in the region.

The history of Andersen AFB dates back to the winter of 1941. The little island was attacked by the Empire of Japan a few hours after the extremely powerful attacks on Pearl Harbor. It took less than 2 days for the Japanese armies to take over the island. During the war, it constantly hosted around 15000 Japanese troops. Guam was released from the Japanese occupation by the United States of America. Prior to the invasion, the island was constantly bombed for almost 2 weeks. The Americans invaded the island from South to North. Many Japanese warriors remained in the area and fought back for years. After taking over the island, the place seemed excellent for a new base. This one was the first one in the area. It was a good strategic point close to Japan. The base was built and opened in the same year – 1944.
