Guam - The Armed Forces Communication and Electronics Association Marianas held a special luncheon in memoriam of the late John Gerber, who built the Pacific War Museum in Anigua. Gerber was a retired U.S. Marine who was well known for his dedication to the Corps over the last few decades.
USMC Colonel Ken Simon and chapter board member Mark Calvo presented a shadow box, which encases the flags previous flow over the museum. "What we have here on the upper corners right and left are pieces of the original flags that John had put up here that fly in front of the museum," said Calvo. "They were faded and we saw an opportunity to help out in this little way."
Gerber was also instrumental in drawing attention to rename Guam's main road to "Marine Corps Drive". He passed away from a heart attack last May.
