My grand-uncle was a proud part of the fighting 442nd – despite discrimination at home and abroad, he and other Japanese-Americans fought for the freedoms of all. 🙂

When I was a little girl, my grandparents took us to a traveling history display about WWII Japanese-Americans – and there was a huge picture on a wall of soldiers – my mother said “That is Uncle”… and I could only think “Wow (sincere tone).” As an adult, I respect, admire, and honor…. but I still think “wow” (even more sincere tone) too… 🙂
