The occasion was witnessed by special assistant for Military Affairs Glenna S. Palacios of the Commonwealth Bureau of Military Affairs; Capt. Kimberly Hofschneider, Indo-Pacific Command liaison officer to the CNMI; Sgt. Saili Tigilau and soldiers from the 100th Battalion Echo Company and the 302nd Quartermaster, along with other members of the community.
