Brothers in Arms

Army Capt. Pedro Pomales (left) and Army Sgt. Pedro Pomales-Alverio normally serve in different units in Puerto Rico, but were given this opportunity to deploy to Joint Task Force Guantanamo together. The brothers are part of the Puerto Rico Army National Guard and serve here as part of the Headquarters and Headquarters Service Battery 2-162 Field Artillery, whose mission is maintaining the JTF's external security. JTF Guantanamo conducts safe, humane, legal and transparent care and custody of detained enemy combatants, including those convicted by military commission and those ordered released. The JTF conducts intelligence collection, analysis and dissemination for the protection of detainees and personnel working in JTF Guantanamo facilities and in support of the Global War on Terror. JTF Guantanamo provides support to the Office of Military Commissions, to law enforcement and to war crimes investigations. The JTF conducts planning for and, on order, responds to Caribbean mass migration operations.
