After a year of small-town American life with a twist of tropical island paradise, Nancy Borowick finally felt at home in Guam. She had become a certified underwater scuba diver, picked up needlepoint as a hobby and had taken photos mainly to show her friends and family the unusual mixture of island life and military culture in United States territory.
