Guam - The island welcomed home nine of its heroes over the weekend. Nine airmen with the Guam Air National Guard's 254th Force Support Squadron returned home Sunday setting the pace for over 100 members of the 254th Red Horse squadron also expected to return home. The 254th FSS team spent several months serving under the combined joint special operations task force in Afghanistan providing morale, welfare and recreation support to thousands of the deployed US Armed Forces members. FSS team leader Master Sgt. Jerry Damian states, "Our team played a role in supporting the larger mission to dismantle the deadly force of the Taliban, bringing stability to Afghanistan and shifting the military into more of an advisory role as we begin to withdraw our forces in America's longest running war."  

The team members were greeted at the Guam International Airport terminal by family members, fellow guard members and Major General Benny Paulino.
