Admiral John Menoni, the commander of Joint Region Marianas, will be leaving Guam soon for his next duty station.

According to the Department of Defense, Menoni’s next assignment is in Virginia where he will serve as commander, of Expeditionary Strike Group Two, in Virginia Beach.

Menoni is now winding down his duties as U.S. Indo-Pacific Command representative, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau; commander, U.S. Naval Forces, Marianas; and commander, Joint Region Marianas, Guam.

Menoni is well-liked and highly respected in the Guam community because he has always been very accessible to the government of Guam and the island’s media.

It was during his tenure that the military and GovGuam worked closely together to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary stay of the virus-infested USS Theodore Roosevelt on Guam.
