War In The Pacific National Historical Park

At War in the Pacific National Historical Park the former battlefields, gun emplacements, trenches, and historic structures all serve as silent reminders of the bloody World War II battles that ensued on Guam. While the park is known for its historical resources, the warm climate, sandy beaches, and turquoise waters beckon visitors and residents to enjoy the island's natural resources. Many lives were lost and the suffering was great for all those involved in the battles on Guam and throughout the Pacific Theater. Asan Bay Overlook with its panoramic view and its Memorial Wall which contain 16,142 names of Chamorro and American casualties who suffered or died during the war on Guam. Liberator's Memorial honors the armed forces that participated in the 1944 landing on Guam.
