The Guam National Guard held a Prisoner of War and Missing in Action flag-raising ceremony at the Barrigada Readiness Complex, as part of its Veteran’s Day ceremony.

Maj. Gen. Aguigui said in her remarks, “The Guam National Guard pauses to recognize and honor our nation’s prisoners of war, who have endured incredible suffering and brutality under conditions of extraordinary hardship, and the tens of thousands of our patriots who are still missing in action. Although our nation will never be able to fully repay our debt to those who have given so much on our behalf, we celebrate their bravery, and recommit to working for their families they left behind. Families who deserve answers and comfort for their missing loved ones.”
