ylw-text.gif This monument was installed to commemorate George Hunt, who, at the time of the invasion of Palau, was one of the few solders who had single-handedly penetrated the forest beyond the beach-head, and successfully threw hand-grenades into the concrete "pill boxes" that the Japanese Army hid in to defend the islands. After the war, Hunt was given many citations for his bravery, and upon return to civilian life, he entered the publishing business and became the editor-in-chief of Life magazine.
