Guam - Before dozens of the island's servicemen and women, Governor Eddie Calvo proclaimed June in celebration of the 239th birthday of the United States Army. Governor Calvo recognized Guam's long history with the US Army and its growing presence in the Pacific.

Lt. Col. Ronnie Delfin read the proclamation said, "Guam joins the Nation in thanking the Army for all they do to protect our democracy, our nation, our island and our people. It's through the toils and sacrifices of the soldiers and the families of those soldiers that we are able to express our opinions, send our sons and daughters to school, be judged by our peers."

The Army Ball meanwhile is set for June 14 at the Sheraton Laguna Resort.
