Japanese American Valor: The 100th Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and the Military Intelligence Service
Join us for a presentation by Seattle Nisei Veterans Committee Commander, USAF Lt. Col (ret) Mike Yaguchi on the history and legacy of the all Japanese American segregated units of WWII: the 100th Battalion, the 442nd RCT, Military Intelligence Services, and the importance of their post-WWII Gold Medal recognition.
“American Soldiers of Japanese Ancestry delivered a powerful lesson in citizenship during World War II. Their values – loyalty, courage, patriotism – are timeless statements about being American. Rising above fear and prejudice, they wrote an unrivaled battle history that remains legendary, even today. It’s an American story for the ages.” – General Eric Shinseki, 34th Chief of Staff
