“One of the hard things about being a military member here [in Guam] is that the food is so good. I understand the average military member gains somewhere in the area of 20 to 30 pounds during their tour here on Guam and that’s because of the red rice and the chicken and the finadeni and the ribs. I always enjoy meals like this. Thankfully, I did my PT test this morning and just did well on it so I can enjoy the [Guamanian food that USO Guam brought for us today].”
