Discovery (Post#29) : War in the Pacific National Historical Park
Aside from the memorial wall that has been put up to Asan Bay Overlook and the scenic view that it offers to the visitors, the ridge line has historical importance to the island. War in the Pacific National Historical Park boundaries are huge to emphasize its significance. There are three boards display that can be found at the lookout area that gives some information about what happened during World War II. Since Japanese was in strong positions at the hillside, they tried to do a Banzai (suicide) attack to drive Americans to the sea as they knew that if they failed they would lost the island. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.
