Christopher Camacho takes lead of Guam Guard's 105th Troop Command

Posted: Updated:

On Saturday, Lt. Col. Christopher Camacho took the helm of the Guam Army National Guard's 105th Troop Command during a ceremony held at the Guam Readiness Center in Barrigada. The 105th Troop Command is the only Brigade level Command within the Guam Army National Guard.

It was activated in October 2002 to manage combat support and combat service units of the rapidly growing Guam Guard.  They provide logistical and administrative support for units not structured under another formation headquarters

“I'd like to start off by saying how grateful I am to be selected and fulfill Col. Tougher's shoes,” Camacho said.

“I hope that the lessons I learned with the course of my career will help me to continue to succeed, the path that the two previous commanders have set before me.”

Colonel Michael Tougher had been Commander of the 105th Troop Command since 2015.
