USS Theodore Roosevelt

Governor Lou Leon Guerrero issued the following statement Tuesday, after the passing of a sailor assigned to the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt:

“On behalf of Lieutenant Governor Joshua Tenorio, my husband Jeff, and our families, we offer our deepest condolences to this sailor and his family. We live in uncertain times but Guam understands that every bit of freedom we enjoy is paid for by the men and women of the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt and others like them. Without a single weapon fired, the world is engaged in a costly struggle against a committed and relentless enemy. And, while we mourn for everyone we have lost in this fight, we promise their absence will not be vain. We wish him peace, eternal rest, and the knowledge that his loss touched thousands of people he has never met.”
