Guam is considered an important strategic military stronghold for the United States of America with a tumultuous past. First, this country was colonized by the Spanish in 1668, and it quickly became a critical refueling point for Spanish ships crossing the Pacific. In 1898, following the Spanish-American war, Spain lost control of Guam to the United States. After that, it had a 3-year occupancy by Japan during WWII. Now, Guam is an important U.S. island territory. For all of its past, Guam is home to a diverse population of U.S. Navy personnel, the indigenous Chamorro, and people of Japanese, Chinese, and other Pacific Island descent.
