Kwajalein Commemoration Day 69th Anniversary

Ambassador Armbruster joined hundreds of Kwajalein Atoll residents on Ebeye Island to mark the 69thanniversary of the liberation of Kwajalein Atoll from the Japanese in World War Two. The ceremony included US Army-Garrison Kwajalein Atoll officers, Ebeye Mayor Lemari, and Minister for Assistance Tony DeBrum who delivered the keynote address and said that the US-Marshall Islands partnership is “permanent.” Sixty nine years ago some of the fiercest fighting of the Pacific campaign took place on Kwajalein Atoll.  Here is a link to Ambassador Armbruster’s speech.
