Greetings from War In The Pacific National Historical Park

In October 2019 I traveled to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in a NPCA trip coordinated with the Pacific Islands Institute. Our guides were excellent and readily shared their wealth of knowledge related to the World War II sites we visited. In addition, I learned an immense amount of information about the Chamorro people(indigenous) and their culture.

Sincerely,
Michael
