Only two tanks left, both American; years ago there were several Japanese and American tanks but I believe the Japanese tanks were taken back to Japan in the eighties or nineties.

One of the Japanese tanks was moved just down the hill from the naval hospital. The last time I saw it was 2002.

I was stationed on Guam in 1952 and 1953. Some friends and I visited this area. I remember many unexploded rockets, bombs and hand grenades along with 3 Sherman Tanks. I took some 35mm color slides and I will post them after converting the slides.

@Floyd, Please do a post a link to where you share them. I'd be very interested in viewing the shots.

I've climbed that tank! I dug out the picture I took in 1972 when 4 of us from the USS Hunley, assigned to Ballast Point, made the 5 mile hike past Talafofo Falls to see the sights. It looks drivable now.

I was stationed on Guam in 1981-82 and would like to see the photos also. I visited these tanks back in the 80's and Im not sure of the numbers but I recall at least two Sherman and two Japanese tanks but can't find any photos of them. I do vividly remember that one of the Japanese tanks had a large hole in the front where it took a hit and blew the turret off the top.
