Literary Arts Group to Honor Insular Guard’s Defense of Guam on Invasion Anniversary this Friday

535

Guam – Ginen I Hila’ I Maga’taotao Siha Association is hosting its second annual tribute this Friday to the Guam Insular Force Guard of 1941.

The storytelling and literary arts group is inviting the public to celebrate the memory of these heroes.

To commemorate the actual time and location of this significant battle, the event is scheduled from 4 to 6 o’clock in the morning at the Guam Insular Guard Monument at the Plaza de España in Hagåtña this Friday,  December 10.

On the morning of December 10, 1941, Japanese soldiers invaded East Hagåtña Bay. With what few weapons and ammunition they were left with, a little over one hundred CHamoru men staged themselves in Hagåtña until Japanese soldiers stormed the beaches of the island. The men of Guam fought valiantly to defend their island, and many of these men were brave members of the Guam Insular Force Guard. To this day, there has been little mention of this historic battle, and while the island continues to observe and celebrate the Guam Liberation, the events of December 10th are known to few.

The event is free and open to the public.

For more information, please contact Selina Onedera-Salas at 487-7415 or at ginenihila@gmail.com, Felix Benavente at 988-7911, or group President Rosa Salas Palomo at 727-5522.
