Guam: A Strategic War Island, a Twin Shipwreck, and a Pesky Snake with Adrienne Rolon

states Mar 28, 2022

It's the only place in the world where World War I and World War II ship wrecks sit quietly next to each other, close enough for divers touch both at the same time. Sharon tells the story of Guam’s history as a U.S. Territory to Adrienne Rolon, the owner of Hearts Content Events & Design. Adrienne’s young son, James, is a big fan of history, facts, and Sharon. Learn along with Adrienne and James as Sharon relays the significant history of Guam’s involvement in both the Spanish-American War and World War II. Sharon also shares plenty of brain-tingling facts about Guam’s long and varied history and the indigenous Chamorro people (who really love SPAM).
