Asam, Guam Mayor Salas was ready to leave work for the day when a man walked into his office with a WWII-era UXO wrapped in a rag that he had found while while working in his yard.
Mayor Salas promptly called EOD who responded and identified the item as a live WWII-era hand grenade. EOD removed the hand grenade for proper disposal.
Even though residents are urged to call the police as soon as UXO items are found, residents continue to hand-deliver UXO items to local government officials. Other Guam Mayors have reported similar situations where residents bring ordnance to Government offices for disposal.
Mayor Salas believes that the community hasn't been reached by the Government awareness campaign and asks that if an ordnance is found, to not touch it and call 911.<.p>
