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

The park is known for its historic resources, but the verdant jungles, sandy beaches, turquoise waters, and stunning coral reefs also beckon visitors and residents to enjoy Guam.
