A casual get-together will be held on August 7 from 12 noon to 2 pm, to bring together Nisei veterans who served in the Japanese imperial forces and veterans of the renowned US Military Intelligence Service (MIS) during World War II. This informal event will be held in commemoration of the 60th anniversary marking the end of the Pacific War.

The tide of war brings with it atrocities and hardships for all who are involved, and the Pacific War was of no exception. This is particularly true for Nisei who lived during this era. It is little known that scores of Nisei who resided in Japan during the Pacific War were drafted into the Japanese imperial forces and forced to fight against their homeland. A similar piece of Nisei history was, until just recently, shrouded in a veil of obscurity. The Nisei who proudly served in the US Military Intelligence Service (MIS) are only rather recently being acknowledged for their relentless efforts throughout the Pacific theatre.

This is the best opportunity to hear these unknown stories. Please join us!! (Need RSVP)
