AGANA HEIGHTS, Guam (April 22, 2019) - U.S. Naval Hospital Guam (USNH Guam) wins five flagship awards under the Navy’s Community Service Program (NCSP). The program is designed to encourage and promote involvement of Navy volunteers in the communities in which they live and work.

USNH Guam competed Navy-wide in the large overseas command category for the five flagships: Personal Excellence Partnership; Health, Safety and Fitness; Campaign Drug Free; Project Good Neighbor and Environmental Stewardship. USNH Guam won in all five categories for the award period, July 2017 to June 2018.

The hospital was recognized for volunteering over 6,000 hours to the Guam community, from helping the youth to beautifying the island. The hospital participated in roadside and beach clean-ups, Guam Habitat for Humanity, Guam Juvenile Drug Court, Micronesia Youth Club, Operation Christmas Drop, school science fairs and more.

“The bond between the United States Navy and the local Guam community is of the utmost importance,” said USNH Guam Command Volunteer Coordinator and Command Chaplain, Lieutenant Commander Aaron Roberton. “Military service members are assigned to serve here, but they also live here. The military is a part of the fabric of those that make up the community on Guam. Volunteering improves the quality of life for all, military and locals.”

USNH Guam continues to volunteer and participate in service projects throughout the island in support of the Navy’s flagships and the combined efforts to better the community.
