Guam - Just a day after the island remembered and honored veterans, a park dedicated to vets was unveiled in the village of Sinajana today. Vice-Mayor Robert Hofmann says the park was built using a $14,000 "We Are Guam" grant from the Guam Visitors Bureau.
"Sinajana is very unique," Hofmann said. "A lot the residents here are older, so a lot of them have served in the military, so if you drive by house you can see military plates or they are retired or a vet or once have served in the military in their lifetime or their mom or brother or sister. Sinajana is considered a very patriotic village."
The village's Mayor's Office also forked out an additional $10,000 for the park that includes a granite monument dedicated to veterans. Phase II is expected to be completed early next year and will include the building of a pavilion and a plaque inscribed with names of Guam's veterans.
