Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo declared the island in a state of morning over the weekend after first hearing news of two of Guam's heroes who lost their lives in Afghanistan. He says as we lead up to memorial day next week, this is a time to pay homage to our fallen heroes.

"So as we pay homage and pray for them and their souls and the comfort of their families and to all those that have also fallen in behalf of our island and nation, fighting for our freedom, it's important to pray and do homage to them, the same time our prayers also for our soldiers and troops still out there in harm's way in Afghanistan," the governor said.

He says it's important for our community to come together to see what kind of assistant we can offer the soldiers and their families.
