July 21st, 1999 marked the 55th anniversary of Liberation day which ended the Japanese occupation of Guam. Each year, residents line Marine Drive to celebrate this historic date with gala festivities, a parade, and fireworks in the evening.
The Marianas Military Museum Foundation Trustees capatilized on the big 1999 Liberation Day Parade crowd to bring attention to the museum. Often this museum, one of Guam's three main museums, is missed due to its location on the Navy base. So the Camacho/Torres, family of one of the museum board members, reserved a space for the museum next to their Marine Drive parade route tent to allow space for exhibits brought from the museum. It was a very popular stop for people that day, and many commented on the exellence of the displays.
