I'm sure they'll be based out of somewhere else, especially given the vast distances when operating from US bases. Having said that, I wonder what Guam will be used for now that the big bombers have left.

Likely ISR and/or hypersonic strike platforms. I have a sneaking suspicion it would be the ideal operating location for the SR-72, and/or many of the flying wing ISR aircraft that've been covertly developed over the past decade.
