Guam - The island's 69th Liberation Day festivities aren't over yet as July 28th marks the day the United States military forces discovered the Manenggon concentration camp.
Runners representing their families who were in Manenggon, friends, and supporters as well as representatives from various GovGuam agencies are slated to retrace the routes that our people took on their forced march to Manenggon at this Sunday's freedom run celebration.
Senator Tina Muna Barnes says it's important that we keep the survivor stories alive as the longest of the treks is over 20-miles long starting from Yigo to the Yona site. "They will start at five different points then they will all meet at Ylig Bridge before three and right at three we'll have the survivors and the friends and supporters of all those who survived the Manenggon concentration camp walk and march to the monument," she said.
If you don't want to participate in the run, the public is invited to meet at Ylig Bridge at 3 p.m. to make the mile and a half march into the concentration camp.
