by Heather Hauswirth

Guam - Another sendoff ceremony was held at the Guam National Guard's Readiness Center today as the Matua Platoon prepares to be deployed to the Philippines.  The unit leaves this week for post mobilization training at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.

The Matua Platoon, 1st Battalion 294th Infantry Regiment, is the third unit to be mobilized in support of overseas contingency operations. 

Guam National Guard Adjutant General Major General Donald Goldhorn told KUAM News, "The most critical part of this mission is the humanitarian efforts put forward in the Philippines in support of what the armed forces of the Philippines are doing."
