Guam - Major General Benny Paulino appeared before senators today for his confirmation hearing. Governor Eddie Calvo appointed Paulino to serve as the territorial adjutant general for the Guam National Guard. 

Several people testified in support of his confirmation, saying he is a visionary a person that has great aspirations for the National Guard. If confirmed, this would mark Paulino's second time serving in the position.

Sergeant Major Juan Blas says Paulino is a man with a lot of heart and who has proven himself to be an excellent commanding general. "I know that he will take care of his men and women in uniform both from the Air Guard and the Army Guard side as well as civilians that are under the Department of Military Affairs," he said.

Paulino was head of the National Guard during Operation Pacific Haven, the Korean Airlines crash and Supertyphoon Paka.
