Liberation Day 2017 July 04 2017
This year's theme is ågradesi which means to appreciate or value. It was July 21, 1944 when the US forces retook our precious island of Guam from the Japanese after weeks of fierce fighting in the Second Battle of Guam. The Japanese captured Guam from the U.S. in the 1941 First Battle of Guam during the Pacific campaign of World War II.
Let's show our appreciation and give thanks to all those who fought or lost their lives defending our freedom.
You can show your appreciation and Chamorro pride by purchasing one of our beautifully designed I AM CHAMORRO t-shirts. Wear it proudly to your local Liberation Day celebration. You'll be glad you did!
