Guam - A Guam Army National Guard soldier was invited to have dinner with President Barack Obama at the White House. SPC Janice Flores will be attending the event at the end of this month in honor of veterans who served in Operation Iraqi freedom and operation new dawn. Major General Benny Paulino states, "This is an enormous privilege and opportunity for SPC. Flores, to be able to sit down, have dinner, and spend some time with the President of the United States, our Commander in Chief.  I want to congratulate SPC Flores and her family on her selection.  Being with the President in an event like this is an extremely rare opportunity for many Americans, perhaps even more so for us here on Guam, given our geographical location."

SPC Flores is from Chalan Pago has deployed to Kuwait and Iraq during her military career. Each state and territory nominated a soldier and an airman from their Guard organizations to attend the dinner.
