YIGO, Guam, Guam - Marines with Marine Corps Activity Guam pose with William Mays, a Marine who fought on Guam in 1944 during the liberation, at the Chagui’an Massacre memorial event July 16 in Yigo, Guam. On this site, Japanese fighters massacred a group of Chamorro men after forcing them to move supplies across the island. The ceremony was one of many held across the island to celebrate the liberation of the island from Japanese oppression and occupation in 1944. The Guam Marines wrapped up support for the island’s 69th Liberation celebration Sunday by participating in the Liberation Day Parade, the culminating event in a series of ceremonies and celebrations across the island held to honor those lost and celebrate the liberation of the island.
