Guam - Aqua Suites Hotel in Tamuning today dedicated a new fitness course to honor the island's active duty and retired military personnel that live and visit Guam.

Mathew Martin, director of sales and marketing, told KUAM News, "Personally this is important to me because this is a veteran owned hotel I served two tours in the Marine Corps and I think that it's not only important that we recognize people who are currently serving but also people who have sacrificed a lot to have served and their families. We look across our island here in Guam and each individual family member whether it be a mom a father, brother , sister, a husband, wife or even a child that has a lose this time or hold up on their own when they're serving their country it's our way of saying thank you."

The hotel owners also presented a $1,000 check to the USO Fund. Also part of today's dedication, five recruits were sworn in to serve in the US Army. According to Martin today's dedication is just the beginning as the hotel plans to continue to reach out to military service members. Currently Aqua Suites provides all military free stateside phone calls as well as free WiFi in every room. The Tamuning hotel also has plans to expand the recreation area in the back of the hotel and construct permanent BBQ stations and pavilions.

The idea is to provide visitors a home away from home.
