History of the Soldiers
The War Years (1941 – 1946)
Japanese American Nisei Soldiers overcame discrimination and adversity to serve their country and became the most highly decorated soldiers of WWII. Their struggle to overcome prejudice and demonstrate their loyalty to the United States is a story to which many of us can relate.
Their stories can inspire, teach and empower all of us, and is one that needs to be shared. This is the mission of the NVN.
