|HPO (Historic Pres of Saipan) Supervised dig at the old Jail in Garapan|
To all those who doubted that could ever happen - it did. Perseverance, good luck, helpful hands - and being on site all helped. Thanks to all the folks at HPO who worked overtime to help us get our shovels into the dirt. What's that they say in the Marines? "Lead, follow, or get out of the way." Everyone chipped in to help us get to this point. A heartfelt thanks from the team.
What's down here? We'll let you know.

We had an interesting and revealing interview with Jack Salas. His brother Jesus, passed just prior to our arrival. For those familiar with Mike Harris' interview with Manny Muna back in 1983, Manny said that Jesus saw Amelia in this jail in a cell prior to the war and pointed it out to Mike.
