More than 70 members of the Guam National Guard and the U.S. Army Reserves returned home Saturday after helping the people of Saipan recover from the devastation of Super Typhoon Yutu.

Over the past six weeks, Guard members and U.S. Army reservists were on Saipan to help with clearing and transporting more than 10,000 cubic yards of debris, assessing thousands of homes and repairing more than 300 roofs with temporary fixtures to allow residents to return to safe, livable conditions.

Recovery efforts on Saipan will continue as Federal Emergency Management Agency contractors seamlessly take over what the military started.

The remaining Guard members will return this week. (PR)
