The Amtrak

Off the shore of Agat, about 45 feet underwater, rests the amtrak. This personnel carrier, sunk in WWII, was part of the U.S. invasion force that stormed Guam in 1944. I had a surreal moment as I hovered there and took this picture, wondering how many American soldiers were in the amtrak when it was sunk, how many lost their lives, how many mothers saw their boys come home.

    Hi Josie,
    Did you take many hi res pics of this LVT? I plan on doing a scale model of one to present to the War In The Pacific Museum some time this year and pics of this would be great to accompany it. Please contact me if you have any questions. Btw, still love your site after all these years!
