The Guard asks the public for their continued support as this mobilization will also have a significant impact on the Guam National Guard who join more than 50 airmen who are still deployed abroad in support of Operations Inherent Resolve and Freedom Sentinel.

And with a group deploying, we welcome home six airmen from the Guam Air National Guard's 254th Security Forces Squadron who returned home on Saturday.
