During WWII, Japanese American Soldiers fought against Axis powers abroad and racial prejudice at home.
Today, Japan and the US have progressed beyond reconciliation to become the closest of allies. The Military Intelligence Service Nisei Linguists were of critical importance during WWII to the United States and the post war rebuilding of Japan.
Join us to honor the service and sacrifices of Nisei Veterans. We will also be featuring the award-winning film "Honor and Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story". As a Nisei soldier during WWII, Roy was a member of Merrill's Marauder's in Burma and served as member of the MIS in China toward the end of the war. He is an honored NVC Member.
