U.S. Military Plans to Use Pagan Island-- Part 2

The Marine Corps says Pagan island is the only island available with beaches large enough for major amphibious maneuvers.  They will repair the old Japanese runway to ferry in supplies.  Bombing targets would be set up on Mount Pagan.

Some 5,000 Marines are due to move to Guam in the next decade, but Guam is too heavily populated for large-scale war games.

War also might return to the Pacific with China building up its amphibious landing capability and becoming more assertive in its islands claims.
