Bordallo’s district office to extend hours for war claims applications
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The district office of Delegate Madeleine Z. Bordallo (D-GU) will extend its hours of operation today, Monday, June 18, and tomorrow, June 19, from 8am to 7pm to assist Guam War Claims Program applicants. Additionally, a notary public will be available in house from 5pm to 7pm.
The district office is located in the Ada’s Capitol Plaza at 120 Father Duenas Ave., Ste. 107 in Hagåtña.
The Guam War Claims Program application period will end on June 20, 2018.
In an effort to help as many individuals file before the deadline, the District Office staff will be available to assist. Completed and notarized applications can be submitted to the District Office to be mailed out to the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission no later than June 19, 2018 or sent directly to the Commission postmarked by June 20, 2018.
“There are just six days left for individuals to file their war claims applications, and I urge eligible claimants to apply. The commission has received 2,348 applications so far, with a vast majority of claims coming from our man’åmko who survived the occupation.
“Passing war claims was a commitment I made to the people of Guam and something that I never gave up on or stopped fighting for. I worked alongside many of our local organizations here on Guam, as well as with policymakers and officials in the Bush, Obama, and now Trump administrations, to secure passage of war claims and make sure that the law is implemented at intended. I commend all the work of my predecessors, former [delegates] Antonio Won Pat, Ben Blaz, and Robert Underwood, who really laid the groundwork for our success. This was a positive accomplishment for Guam, and I hope it gives our man’åmko recognition for what they endured during the occupation as a result of their loyalty and patriotism to the United States.” (PR)
