Guam - Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio appeared before village mayors this morning, requesting their support for a Heroes Homecoming Celebration tentatively scheduled for April. The event is for the island's nearly 600 Army National Guard soldiers who recently returned from their deployment to Afghanistan.

Tenorio said, "Since they've returned obviously they've gone back to their families spent some quality time, some of them are in education programs or employment programs but we want to try to after they've given a certain amount of time maybe up until late march or early April to ask each one of the villages to coordinate something like a fiesta at each one of those pavilions at the Ypao Beach Park. We'll be working with the business community and other stakeholders to try to get resources for example food donations, money donations and things like that will go to kind of offset it. We won't be able to pay for the entirety of it."

The homecoming party is tentatively scheduled for April 6 at the Ypao Beach Park in Tumon.
