Nishimura, George 442nd Regimental Combat TeamMembers of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the 100th Battalion and the Military Intelligence Service are being recognized this weekend for their dedication and service to this country, reports KITV

The segregated Japanese American military units were formed 70 years ago and played major roles in the Allied victory in Europe.

“We stand in the midst of true patriots who have bravely served,” said Wesley Deguchi, Sons and Daughters president.

  Many of those who served are now in the 70’s and 80’s. They were honored at a service in Honolulu on the lawn of the U.S. Army Museum at Fort DeRussy.
 ” That every hardship they endured, every bullet they took, was to prove that they were grateful to live in a democracy and a country of opportunity and that we, the future generation, would have that same privilege,” said Evan Matsuyama. “We will not forget.”
  You can learn about the pact one of those present at the ceremony made with the late Senator Daniel Inouye on KITV.
