Ben Sablan, a driver for Triple J Five Star Wholesale Foods lives by the standard, "Beyond the call of duty!" Sablan seizes every opportunity he has to go beyond what is asked of him by sharing the
Adai Spirit to everyone he interacts with.
During one of his shifts, Sablan came in contact with an injured driver at the Dededo 76 Gas Station while driving back from his deliveries to the Triple J Five Star warehouse.
The injured driver was pinned between a fuel tank truck and a concrete wall. Without hesitation, Sablan rushed over to help. While many witnesses were too shocked to aid the victim, Sablan took charge and used his knowledge of vehicle operations to back the fuel tank truck away, releasing the victim for first responders to reach the victim to take to the hospital.
Ben Sablan is a living example of the
Adai Spirit. His motto, "Beyond the Call of Duty" ties into the teachings and spirit of Inafa'maolek, "to make good." He shows us to go beyond what is expected of us in order to make things good for our island, community members, and our visitors. We thank community members like Ben Sablan for making Guam a better place to live, work, and visit.
