Fernando graduated from Southern High School and enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Combat Medic during the height of the Iraq invasion.

His Guamanian upbringing made him well suited for military service honoring cultural staples such as duty, respect, and selflessness. He earned for himself multiple accolades such as West Point Soldier of the Year, MEDDAC Soldier of the Year, and Commandant’s List during leadership schools. 

Having entered the Army as a Private (E-1) through hard work and commitment he moved through the ranks and was promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6) in just five years. During his military career he served multiple combat tours in a Stryker Brigade on the front lines; Iraq 2007-2008, Iraq 2009-2010, and Afghanistan 2012-2013. Throughout his career he has earned over 33 military citations and awards. While on active duty he was enrolled in college juggling a demanding career and higher education. His time at St. Thomas Aquinas College and Pierce College was spent studying health sciences towards a potential long-term career in medicine. After his enlistment on Fernando moved back to Guam and opened a small business dealing with environmental compliance. Fernando is married to Elaine Salas Esteves and is currently serving in the Medical Platoon of the 1-294th Infantry Regiment, Guam Army National Guard continuing his service to the Army and the Island.
