Guam - At least 600 soldiers with the Guam Army National Guard's 1-294th Infantry Regiment will be conducting a Command Run in around Hagatna Saturday morning. The large group recently returned from three weeks annual training in Camp Roberts, California, as they prepare to deploy to Afghanistan in February of next year.

Command Sergeant Major David Flores advises motorists to drive slow and encourages residents to participate and support your Guam soldiers. "It is also part of our US Army traditions where a commander will take his troops out for run to promote esprit de corps and at the same time we'll be running the community so the island can see and experience the showcase of our battalion," he said. 

The Command Run will begin around 5am at Adelup this Saturday.
