Guam: a strategic stronghold in the Pacific
Since 1944, when the U.S. built its first air base on the island, Guam has been a vital location for the U.S. military.
Today, Guam hosts nearly 7,000 military personnel, and its installations occupy nearly a third of the island’s total area.i The island is home to Joint Region Marianas, which combined Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam into a single installation.
To deliver support to the military installations on Guam, as well as their personnel, DeWitt Guam created a team exclusively dedicated to military relocations. We’ll work closely with the Personal Property office to coordinate your transition and ensure a seamless experience.

What military members can expect when relocating to Guam
There aren’t that many PCS orders that will take you to a literal island paradise, but that’s what you’ll find in Guam. That being said, it’s probably safe to say that Guam will represent a big change from your current station, so there are a few things you should know before you make the move:
- The weather: Although the temperatures in Guam are pretty similar year round, with lows around 78 and highs around 87, you might be surprised to hear that Guam does have two seasons. The rainy season (fanuchanan in Chamorro, the native language of the indigenous peoples of Guam) lasts from July through November, while the dry season (fanumnangan) runs from December to April. Average rainfall sits between 80-100″ year, although rain showers are often short and pass quickly. Finally, paradise comes with a price: Guam is at risk for typhoons year round, although large storms are more likely from July through September.
- The landscape: While you may spend a large amount of your time surrounded by fellow military personnel, Guam has a lot to offer, especially if you take advantage of its plentiful beaches with their crystal-clear waters. Guam offers some of the most plentiful scuba diving opportunities you’ll encounter during your time in the military. Take the opportunity to get certified, and you’ll discover a whole new world below the surface.
- The costs: While your COLA and BAH will help balance costs, it can be expensive to live on Guam. Deciding whether or not to live on base will affect your budget significantly. Additionally, the more you can embrace the local lifestyle, the more affordable options you’ll discover. Take advantage of the local farmer’s markets as much as you can to enjoy some of the better prices on the island—and some of the freshest food options. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have. As the most experienced military relocation experts on the island, we know exactly what it takes to help you make a virtually seamless transition to or from Guam.
