“A lot of the military now are being told that they cannot support public events flyovers things like that,” Sablan told the Mayors. “We may not have the flyovers we may not have even the troops parading down marine corps drive so we need to get more participation from the villages."
Sablan also informed that council that a Non-Profit Organization is being formed to plan and organization the Liberation Day Festivities under the guidance of the Mayors' Council.
