Why go there?

American Memorial Park park honors the American servicemen and Chamorro and Carolinian civilians who were killed in the World War II battles between the United States and Japan that took place on Saipan, Tinian and the Philippine Sea in 1944. Situated on the island of Saipan in the Marianas, the memorials at the park are beautiful and moving, and they stand as a testament to the courage and sacrifice of those who lost their lives in the fighting. The park is also a reminder of the horrific cost of war, and it is a place where visitors can reflect on the human capacity for both destructive violence and selfless heroism.
