War in the Pacific National Historical Park featured 48th in National Park Quarter series

War in the Pacific

Just days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Japanese forces seized the U.S.-held Pacific island of Guam. It remained a strategic military point throughout World War II, until American forces reclaimed the island in 1944.

Today, a total of seven sites around the island make up this National Historical Park. These areas stand together as a beautiful way to honor all those who served during the Battle of Guam. Those who visit the park are able to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as snorkeling, fishing and hiking.
