The Guam Chapter of the 3rd Marine Division Association gathered at the Legislature this afternoon in honor and tribute to the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. to escort Bill 214 to the Clerk’s Office. President of the association, retired Marine Corps Col. Joaquin “Danny” Santos says it is only fitting that the bill renaming Marine Drive to Marine Corps Drive be done in the tradition and memory to the Marines who landed on the island 59 years ago.

Col Danny Santos says, “This is very appropriate to introduce the resolution today, because today is the 228th anniversary of the United States Marine Corps. And as we prepare to celebrate the 60th anniversary next year, July 21, 2004, we felt that this resolution was very appropriate to kick it off and rename the Marine Drive, Marine Corps Drive. We also felt that over the years the significance and the purpose of Marine Drive has lost its importance.”
