Guam - The Guam Army National Guard said farewell to one of their last original charter members today. A retirement ceremony was held today for Army National Guard Lt. Colonel Mike Martinez. He has 30 years of service under his belt, and throughout his military career earned an array of medals and awards, as well as earned his degrees from a handful of military schools including UOG and Kemper Military College.

Martinez advised the troops that they are a family that needs to take care of each other in order to complete the mission. "Not just within this organization but also with the families and take better care of them because without them, you can't do it by your self, there is no 'I' in team," he said.

Martinez was also presented his certificate of retirement from the U.S. Army Chief of Staff General George Casey and President Barack Obama.
