Reflections on Guam’s U.S. Congressional Delegate

ESSAY | REFLECTION
By: Mike Blas
Understanding Unincorporated Status
I wrote this from the perspective of a native son of Guam, a retired U.S. Army veteran, and someone who has many ties and connections to our island and our people because of close family members and friends who still live on the island. I also add the perspective of someone who lives in the mainland, but continues to practice our customs and culture, along with others who have done the same while living in the Washington D.C. metro area for the past 20 years.
