WASHINGTON, D.C.—Delegate Gregorio Kilili Sablan (Ind-MP) and CNMI House Speaker Joseph Deleon Guerrero (Ind-Saipan) visited the Pentagon on Monday, Feb. 22, and Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA, on Wednesday, Feb. 26.

Sablan and Deleon Guerrero attended a briefing followed by a tour of the Pentagon. The briefing, hosted by the Deputy Commandant for Plans, Policies & Operations, Lt. Gen. Ronald Bailey, focused on Marine Corps training concepts, the USMC Pacific Posture plans, and the CNMI Joint Military Training Environmental Impact Statement process and progress to date.

On Wednesday, Sablan and Deleon Guerrero toured the range complex at Marine Corps Base in Quantico, where they observed live-fire artillery training.
