Nearly seven decades after the beginning of World War II, the Congressional Gold Medal was collectively bestowed on the U.S. Army’s 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service. The Nisei Congressional Gold Medal honors the Japanese American men who served with bravery and valor on the battlefield, even while their families were held in internment camps by the very country for which they fought. The 100th/442nd became one of the most decorated unit of its size and length of service in the U.S. Army. With a motto of "Go for Broke," their determination to succeed against all odds was extraordinary.
