A decades-old effort to have Guam World War II survivors receive reparations from the federal government could be decided in the courtroom.
A group of advocates are working to finalize a nonprofit organization called Guam World War II Reparations Advocates Inc., which plans to sue the U.S. government in hopes that survivors finally receive compensation the group believes they deserve.
Sen. Frank Blas Jr., one of the group’s directors, said members of Guam’s “greatest generation” continue to pass away every day.
