Sen. San Agustin’s office

Senator Joe S. San Agustin was pleased to recognize Sgt. 1st Class Jesse Lujan with a Legislative Resolution on March 1 at the Guam Congress Building in Hagåtña. Lujan and 12 others were recently honored as the Army’s best recruiters by Army Secretary Mark T. Esper during a ceremony at the Pentagon in Washington DC.

The Feb. 4 ceremony was featured by the Army News Service. According to that article, there are about 10,000 recruiters in 1,400 stations around the world.

Originally from Inarajan, Lujan graduated from Southern High in 2003. He is married to his high school sweetheart Valerie, and is a loving father of four. He has honorably served 15 years so far in the military, including overseas tours and deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Lujan is now happy to serve here at home at the Hagåtña Recruiting Station, where he himself enlisted, and where he signed up 19 new recruits during the past quarter. He lends his spare time to volunteering with his daughter's Girl Scouts troop, at beach cleanups and in typhoon relief efforts.

The resolution was presented by San Agustin and Speaker Tina Muña Barnes. Please see attached photo. The included links will navigate you to the Army News Service article and to the resolution posted on the 35th Guam Legislature's website.
