War in the Pacific/Get Wet
This layout shows us on my first time in the water in Guam. I only got my feet wet, but it was heavenly - so warm and clear! Why didn't we have our suits with us?
Guam had a big part in World War II - the Japanese attacked on December 8, 1941 and controlled the island for 2 1/2 years. Everywhere you go there are monuments and memorials. Shown here is the visitor center, a Japanese submarine, and the site of Marine Corps barracks that were attacked (now the site of the school that my grandchildren attend).
