Vice President Mike Pence broke bread with troops on Andersen Air Force Base’s dining hall on the night of Nov. 18, during his nearly three-hour stopover in Guam.

Pence and his wife Karen were greeted by a small group of well-wishers including Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo and Rear Adm. Shoshana Chatfield, commander of the joint military forces on Guam.

Pence visited Guam on the day he announced the United States would be collaborating with Papua New Guinea and Australia to build a naval base on Manus Island—strategic during World War ll.

“Today it is my privilege to announced the United States will partner with Papua New Guinea and Australia on their joint initiative on Manus Island,” Pence stated during his speech. “We will work with these nations to protect the sovereignty and maritime rights of Pacific islands as well the USA will continue to uphold the freedom of the seas and the skies which are so essential to our prosperity,” Pence stated, as televised by Australia’s ABC News.
