One of 12 children to parents Pedro Alvarez Camacho and Josefina Blas Camacho, Robert Camacho grew up in Mongmong. He gave 11 years of service in the U.S. Army, where he earned numerous accolades and awards. A symbol of public safety, Robert Camacho later served the community through leadership positions at the Department of Corrections, Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency, Guam Police Department and lastly as the A.B.

During the resolution presentation on Feb. 28 at the Guam Congress Building, Robert Camacho made the following statement on his retirement:
“I want to dedicate this to my mom, who taught me never to quit, and to serve others. I would also like to dedicate this to my family, who've been there for me throughout this time, and the many men and women who have been so instrumental in my career and supported me as a leader at different agencies. When I was reading my resume, looking at all these things, it really went by so fast. All I did was put my nose to the grindstone and saw where I could be of help, and where I could shine light on people’s lives. I hope that’s how people will remember me, that I did my best to serve the community and my country.”
Resolution No. 44-35 will be transmitted to the Office of the Governor for review. For more information, contact the Office of Vice Speaker Telena C. Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (671) 989-7696.
