Lt. Col. Esther J.C. Aguigui, The Adjutant General of the Guam National Guard, visited more than 450 soldiers from the Guam Army National Guard’s 1st-294th Infantry Regiment, and Hotel Company, 29th Brigade Support Battalion, 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, who are currently training at Camp Roberts Army Base in Monterey, California, in preparation for an upcoming mobilization.
Camp Roberts is one of the largest military training facilities in the world with a history dating back to 1797 when the land was farmed and groomed by missionaries. It remains open as the home of the California National Guard.
According the Lt. Col. David Santos, battalion commander, “the individual and collective training events help to increase the units’ overall readiness posture. The soldiers will also conduct crew-served weapons qualifications and participate in squad live-fire exercises.”
The soldiers departed Guam two weeks ago and will continue training for another week before returning home. (PR)
