Guam – The island welcomed home 2 Guam Guardsmen Saturday night, one whose deployment has ended, and another who is on leave.

Capt. Arnold Arizala was one of four soldiers from the 1990th Contingency Contracting Team (CCT) who returned to Guam after more than 8-months in Afghanistan, where he served as part of a highly specialized team tasked with handling all contracting actions in the Afghanistan area of operations.

Another Guam Soldier, Sergeant Robert Bamba, came home on leave to visit with family.

Three remaining Soldiers of the 1990th CCT are expected to leave the theater of operations within the next 30 days and return home shortly thereafter.
