Guam - The first adjutant general for the Guam National Guard has died, as Brigadier General Robert H. Neitz passed away last week in Virginia. General Neitz served locally from 1981-1985 and returned to Guam at least three times after his retirement, helping to commemorate the Guam Guard's 10th, 20th and 25th anniversaries.
He was instrumental in co-authoring the legislation that established the Guam National Guard and concluded his military career as the tag for the Guam Guard.
Neitz was 83 years old.
