- Passing through the "gate way" to Tarague Beach on Andersen Air Force Base for the first time will always
be remembered. As you drove through the high plateau terrain toward the north shore of Guam through the break
in the cliffs and then the breathtaking view at the edge of the cliffs. Rota, Guamâ€™s nearest neighboring island
about 40 miles north, could be seen on clear days.

clear and provided easy swimming. Hochstein is at the top of the pyramid, Helms is pictured on the left.

The clarity of the warm waters around Guam can easily be seen in this picture. Snorkeling along the edges of
the various reefs was a favorite past time. The abundance of wildly colorful tropical fishes, sea shells and
reefs were truly amazing. Hochstein is pictured on the left Helms is on the right.
