U.S. Air Force planes will fly over the island in honor of Veterans Day today. They will fly over the Governor’s complex by 11:30 this morning.

They will fly from the south end of Guam to Asan Beach Park and then over the Governor’s Complex.

The aircraft will be a B1B Lancer and two F22 Raptors.

Veterans Day is also being honored by the Guam National Guard.

The Guam Guard raised the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action flags during a ceremony yesterday at the Barrigada Readiness Complex.

Guam Guard Adjutant General Esther Aguigui said, “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.”

This year’s ceremony will be held virtually. 

Viewers can watch the ceremony on PBS Guam on Channel 12…or on the PBS Facebook page and YouTube channel. 

The ceremony can also be seen on the Governor’s social media.

PNC News would like to thank all men and women in the armed forces who have served as well as those who continue to serve the country.
