Guam - 25 Guam Air National Guardsmen and women are preparing to deploy to Afghanistan and Southwest Asia later this month. A ceremony was held at Adelup to bid farewell and god speed.

The airmen recently completed training in Texas and Nevada in preparation for the deployment during which they will be tasked with different security missions. According to Lt Colonel Audie Artero  the deployment is also unique in the fact that for the first time, each team is lead by a hard-charging female, Master Sgt. Katrina Blas and Master Sgt. Georgina Garrido. Guam National Guard Commander-In Chief, Governor Eddie Baza Calvo, commented that he will be praying for the guardsmen every single day they are gone.
