Hundreds of sailors, national guard personnel and airman helped plant thousands of flags in honor of civilians and service members who died on Guam during WWII.
More than 3,000 flags were planted during a memorial ceremony at the War Memorial Park in Asan. Each flag represented the 1,135 lives of Chamorro civilians that died during the Japanese occupation of WWII and the 1,747 men and women of the U.S. military who died in the islands liberation in 1944. Here are some photos of all the flags.
