Upon returning to the Mediterranean in January, 1977, Guam made a port visit to Barcelona, Spain. During this visit, catastrophe befell the crew of the Guam. While returning to the ship after a night of liberty, a liberty launch was struck by the Spanish freighter Urlea. Forty-nine crewmen from the USS Guam and the USS Trenton (LPD 14) were lost in this tragic accident. The monument that stands in their honor was rededicated at a formal ceremony during Guam's most recent and final visit to Barcelona, in January, 1998.
