BARRIGADA, Guam (Jan. 13, 2020) - The Guam National Guard is currently preparing to answer the call to support our nation with approximately 30 Soldiers to provide security during the Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 20.

Our Soldiers, who are still in the selection process, will go on a voluntary basis. They will join approximately 15,000 troops from other states in the effort to assist civil authorities in ensuring a safe and secure transition of power for our nation.

We are still learning the details of the specific mission requirements of our Soldiers, and we will release updates as information becomes available. For questions or concerns, please contact our public affairs office at

On behalf of the Command Team of the Guam National Guard, we ask for your continued support as we do our part to promote peace in these uncertain times. Thank you, Si Yu’us Ma’ase, and God Bless.
