PITI, Guam — Coast Guard crews from Sector Guam and tenant commands along with family members joined in the Piti Guns historic site community clean-up July 12.

Twenty-two Coast Guard volunteers along with the National Park Service Guam team cleared the debris at the three-gun mount site and adjacent roads. “As we prepare to take part in the 75th Liberation Day commemoration, it is important to work with our partners in efforts to preserve the natural historic landmarks on the island of Guam for future generations to learn about the bravery and sacrifices that were made in the Pacific theater campaign during World War II.” Captain Christopher Chase, Commander, Coast Guard Sector Guam.
