Guam - The Inspector General of the Army, Lieutenant General Peter Vangjel visited the island this week meeting with Guam's troops. He addressed close to 200 soldiers, airmen and civilians of the Guam National Guard speaking about current issues such as budget cuts that are affecting the U.S. Army overall. Vangjel stated, "At the end of the day, we've got to be very efficient about how we accomplish the mission. We've got to be very, very efficient about how many people we keep on the rolls. That's going to cause leaders a little bit of angst. This is a period of transition… We're going to have to work really hard as leaders to be clear with our Soldiers in particular, to make sure they understand why we're doing what we're doing." LTG Vangjel also conducted sensing sessions with different groups of officers during his visit. The Army IG also called on local civilian leaders such as Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo and David Sablan, Employer for Support of the Guard and Reserve chairman. He also visited other Army sites, met with commanders of the Army Reserve and the 3-196th TB, and spent time with IGs of other military services and federal agencies.
