Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo proclaimed the month of July as Guam National Guard Month.

Joined by dozens of members of the Guard, Governor Calvo recognized the years of service the men and women of the Guard have provided to the nation and our island. Guam National Guard Adjutant General Benny Paulino explains the significance of today.

"For me and the National Guard I think this year's celebration is special in that we started with 32 and here we are celebrating 32 years of our existence," he said.

Three of the original 32 charter members attended today's signing ceremony including Staff Sergeant Jeffrey Santos who is still an active member of the Guam Guard. The Guam Guard has among the highest membership per capita of any Guard organizations in the national with over 1,700 members.
