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."
