An incredible group of Japanese-American soldiers in World War II changed the world and touched many lives with their dignity and honor.

The 100th and 442nd Regimental Combat Teams were some of the greatest units in U.S. military history, yet so few in America have ever heard of them.

While they were on the battlefield, their families were incarcerated in internment camps simply because of prejudice.

The bravery and patriotism of the Nisei soldiers earned them the Congressional Gold Medal.
