Beyond Reconciliation: Celebrate Japan-US Alliance and Honor Nisei Veterans of the Military Intelligence Service
Saturday, 29 January 2022 at 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm PST
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. Welcome guests from the Japanese Ground Self Defense Forces and the US 7th Infantry Division as we celebrate the close relationship that the USA now shares with Japan. We will also be featuring the award-winning film “Honor and Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story”.
