Fireside Chat at War in the Pacific National Historical Park

July 13, 2014

Seventy years ago the island of Guam witnessed one of the major battles of World War II as American forces attacked the island to retake it from the Japanese military. The weeks of fighting on the island would alter the lives of thousands.

So that we might better understand their experience, War in the Pacific National Historical Park on July 19th will hold a “fireside chat” at the Asan Beach Unit of the park.

This event, scheduled from 6:15 pm to 9:00 pm, includes returning American veterans and island manamko experiences of the battle. Music from the war period will play throughout the evening, a photo montage of historic scenes will be shown alongside a video prepared for the ceremony, and local survivors of the occupation and veterans of the battle (including two Navajo code talkers) will share their experiences.

We would like to cordially invite you and your family to this commemorative event allowing us to reflect upon the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Guam (1944).
