Congratulations on your orders to U.S. Naval Computer and Telecommunications (NCTS) Station, Guam. Welcome to where America's day begins.
Guam is a small tropical island in the pacific located at 13° 28' 0" N / 144° 46' 59" E. Guam is a U.S. Territory and is relatively close to the Philippines, Japan and Australia as compared to other U.S. territories. It is customary to hear the greeting "Hafa Adai" in Guam. This salutation or greeting is similar to "Aloha" in Hawaii. Just as Hawaiians are well known for saying "Aloha!" so are the natives of Guam just as well known for saying "Hafa Adai!" The correct pronunciation of Hafa Adai is just like "Half a Day". Please visit the Guam Visitors Bureau for further information regarding the island. For those who intend to stay off-base, purchasing a generator is highly encouraged before leaving the U.S. and include it in your household goods shipment.

Some items that you will need to be aware of are: a valid drivers license is required for the length of your tour; no government dining facilities on island; BEQ is located in a remote location; no base transportation services are available; shipping a POV is highly recommended. NCTS Guam does not have a medical or dental branch, and all records will be kept at the Naval Hospital and the dental branch on Naval Base Guam, both locations are south of NCTS.
