Nisei War Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Deeply aware the cloud of suspicion hanging over them in the early days of World War II could be dispersed only by a demonstration of loyalty. Americans of Japanese descent (Nisei) petitioned in 1942 for the right to serve their country. America offered them the opportunity, and the Nisei served with distiction and valor in the 442nd Regimental compat team in Europe, in military intelligence units in the Pacific, and elsewhere. More than 30,000 Nisei bore arms in World War II and Korea. Shedding their blood on such far-flung battlefields as the Arno and Bruyeres. Guadalcanal, Myitkyia and Porkchop Hill. It is to those who made the supreme sacrifice in demonstrating that Americanism is not a matter of race or ancestry that this monument is dedicated.
