[2015] Emmy Kappy: Guam- World War Two

Guam- World War Two

The theme in the Island of Guam is to put others before yourself when they are in need. In the book, Code Talker, Ned and the other Marines helped the Chamorros, who were the Native people on the island. The Japanese treated them horribly when they owned Guam in 1941. When the U.S Marines got to Guam, they helped these people by feeding them and treating them with respect. They especially helped one little boy, whose whole family was killed by the Japanese. This little boy could have been a big distraction to the Navajos, but they decided to take him in for a little while. Also, when Ned and another code talker named Wilsie found their friend, Charlie, on the ground looking as if he was dead, they gave him a mini funeral by putting his dog tag in his mouth and covering him with leaves. They decided to treat him with respect instead of walking by. This all goes to show that Ned and the other Marines put others before themselves when others were in need.

The island of Guam was important to World War Two because it was a step closer to Japan, which was the final destination. Also, the Americans won the battle of Guam in 1944, so they won Guam back as American territory.

The Chamorro Indian’s hometown was Guam, and in 1941, when the Japanese won the first battle on Guam, they started to treat the Chamorros badly. Ned can relate to this because when the whites came to America, they treated the Navajo indians very badly, by taking them on the long walk and putting them into boarding schools. It is nice that the Chamorros have Ned and the rest of the Navajo code talkers, so they can understand each other,.
