Guam, Gaan, Asan, Historical Sites

Guam was the site of a lot of action during the WWII and there are many historical sites still well preserved today. We visited Gaan and Asan Beach which were landing sites for invading allied forces and now nicely maintained memorials. There are still bomb craters and gun emplacements in the areas with signs warning of live munitions. It is very hard to imagine violence that took place here so long ago in what is now such a serene place.
