Guam - The Guam National Guard recognized returning soldiers, airmen, employers and supporters during a joint army and air guard ceremony, "Freedom Salute/ Hometown Heroes Salute" yesterday at the University of Guam Field House in Mangilao. Soldiers, airmen and their family members were also given awards in honor of their service and sacrifice.

National Guard Adjutant General Donald Goldhorn announced, "Each and everyone of you is an intricate part of our success as an organization. Words cannot express how much I appreciate your loyalty and dedication in making the Guam National Guard the best of the best. Much has been accomplished and the future of the Guam National Guard looks very positive."

Special recognition awards were also presented to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo and the island's media, including KUAM, for the support provided to members and families of the Guam National Guard.
