Guam - The Guam National Guard conducted a solemn and private ceremony marking the first anniversary of its Fallen Heroes Memorial at the Barrigada Readiness Center. Family members of the four Guam guardsmen who died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in the Horn of Afirca and Afghanistan attended the ceremony.

Captain David Santos was the Commander for Alpha Company who deployed to Afghanistan in 2008, and said, "In battle or combat a bond is forged amongst your buddies to your left, right front, and rear. It is a bond that is unbreakable! 

"We must never forget that freedom isn't free and we should never take what we have for granted.  We may have lost our brothers but let us not forget their sacrifice."
