Governor Felix Camacho has declared a state of mourning and has ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the late U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Gamboa. The serviceman passed away earlier this week while on deployment in Iraq. The governor wrote of Gamboa, "He was a brave soldier who fought for our freedom and made the ultimate sacrifice. Our heartfelt condolences are with the Gamboa family and all those who mourn this great loss."

Nightly rosaries are being said at 127 Chalan Saligao in Astumbo, Dededo located across from Astumbo Elementary School.
