Guam - It's that time of the year to remember those who fought for our freedom. Veterans Affairs director John Unpingco says Sunday's Veterans Day ceremony is set to take place outside the Governor's Office at Adelup at 11am.

There will be a special flyover followed by the presentation of certificates. Unpingco says there will also be a special presentation of a veteran of the year from every village, telling KUAM News, "The importance of remembering them is that they gave the ultimate sacrifice - that which we enjoy today, which we often take for granted. And we hope to honor them that's all that we can do."

Gauging from last year's turnout, Unpingco expects over 400 to participate in Sunday's ceremony.
