SpaceX to Launch Spacecraft on May 7: Hot Trends
Roughly 5,000 of the Marines will be sent to Guam as part of a military build-up there. Preparations for their arrival are underway in Guam, though no time estimate has been given yet on when they will be transferred. About 2,700 will be sent to Hawaii, while others will go to a base in Darwin, Australia.
The transfer will still leave 9,000 to 10,000 Marines in Okinawa.
The move comes after years of talks between U.S. and Japanese defense officials about cutting the amount of Marines on the island. Local residents of Okinawa have called for a reduction in Marine presence on their land. As Marines are transferred out, the U.S. will return land on Okinawa in phases.
