Legacy of the Nisei Veterans

Submitted By Addie Silveira

A film screening of "Legacy of the Nisei Veterans" - digital stories of Japanese American World War II Veterans, will be presented at the San Leandro Library. The film stories share experiences of men in the segregated 100th/442nd RCT, the most decorated military unit of its size in U.S. history, and the largely unknown story of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS).

MIS members were key to the campaign against Japan through their work translating, interrogating and collecting battlefield information. Also included is a story about broadcasting for the British Political Warfare Mission.

A Reception will follow the presentation.
