It is a part of the American Memorial Park commemorating the Americans and Chamorras who died during the liberation of the Mariana Islands during World War II. Specifically, the memorial honors the 24,000 American Marines and Soldiers who died recapturing the islands of Saipan, Tinian and Guam during the period June 15, 1944 to August 11, 1944.
