Dr. James McConnell, left, and Dr. Rachel Jolley from the University of Guam’s Guam Plant Extinction Prevention Program highlight the danger of Antigonon leptopus, also known as cadena de amor, to native plant life. Characterized by bright pink or white flowers, Antigonon leptopus vines spread aggressively until they completely enshroud surrounding plant life. The vines also serve as food and shelter for invasive ungulates. Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz and the UoG are collaborating to restore and enhance 1,000 acres of Guam’s forests at enhancement sites as part of our commitment to a responsible military buildup process. - Dr. James McConnell, left, and Dr. Rachel Jolley from the University of Guam’s Guam Plant Extinction Prevention Program highlight the danger of Antigonon leptopus, also known as cadena de amor, to native plant life.

Lt. Col. Sally Ann Falco holds photos of two of her female Marine mentors, retired Sgt. Maj. Tammy Fodey and retired Sgt. Maj. Sarah Thornton, the first woman Marine to retire after 30 consecutive years of active service. Falco served as an enlisted Marine for 14 years before her acceptance to the Meritorious Commissioning Program. She commissioned in August 2001 and will soon retire after 34 fruitful years in the Marine Corps. “I’ve just been privileged to be allowed to be a Marine,” Falco said. “I still love it as much as the day I came in, and I would stay in forever, but I want to make room for others to climb the ladder and at the same time, contribute to society in another capacity.” - Lt.
