On July 21, 1944, US Marine and Army Infantry landed on either side of Orote peninsula, at Agat and Asan beaches. They fought four days to secure the peninsula from Japanese forces, a crucial victory in the effort to take back Guam.
Once the island was secured, the US Navy set up shelters here at Ga'an point for the more than 6,000 Chamorros that had been released from Japanese concentration camps. .
Today, over 70 years later, three flags fly at Ga'an point to honor the Americans, Japanese, and Chamorros who died for their country. 🇺🇸🇯🇵🇬🇺
