    I call BS, Guam was a territory of the US, therefore they were considered US soil. the Marine base there were ousted and then re-liberated after years of occupation by the Japanese. Fact check needed here.....just saying.

    *Only land battle fought on US soil* Years later: Area 51 Raid Years later: Aliens are mad that we didn’t release them so they attack us. Boom they turn us into mindless McFUCKS and we walk around like headless zombies. Sounds like fun.

    My previous school had a map of the state of Alaska, even though I am from Norway. And on this map there is detailed description of these two battles, pretty cool tbh, the japanese planned to invade the third island in the island chain too if I remember correctly, but then chose not to.
