Date Event
Apr 1, 2017 Restoring America’s Promise: The Impact of Nisei Veterans in the Fight for Redress

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act granting an apology and financial reparations on behalf of the United States for the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. This official apology serves as a platform for our current day discussions of potential mass incarcerations of other groups. The passage of the Civil Liberties Act would not have been possible without the courage and integrity demonstrated by the Nisei veterans. These men chose to protect America at a time when America chose not to protect them. Mitchell T. Maki, President of Go For Broke National Education Center and author of Achieving the Impossible Dream: How Japanese American Obtained Redress, will discuss the Nisei Veteran contribution to redress. A Q&A will follow the program.

March 16, 2017 Future Nisei Soldiers' Exhibit at the National Museum of the United States Army
With General Eric K. Shinseki (Ret.) and Leadership of the Museum

Please join us for presentations by Ms. Tammy E. Call, Director of the National Museum of the United States Army and Dr. Charles Cureton, Army Chief Curator (Acting) for the U.S. Army Center of Military History. General Eric K. Shinseki (USA-Ret.) and Christine Sato-Yamazaki, Executive Director of the National Veterans Network will also make remarks.

Ms. Call will present information about the National Army Museum which will be the only museum to tell the complete history of the U.S. Army and will serve as the capstone museum for the Army's Museum Enterprise. The 185,000 square-foot Museum is being constructed on an 84-acre site at Fort Belvoir, Va. and will honor the service and sacrifice of all American Soldiers who have served since the Army's inception in 1775.

Specifically, Ms. Call will share the Museum's plans to showcase the Nisei Soldier Congressional Gold Medal in a special exhibit area of the Museum. Dr. Cureton will discuss the U.S. Army's central artifact collection and the Army's efforts to preserve and portray the story of Japanese American Soldiers serving during World War II. Both will welcome questions and smaller discussions following their presentations. Presentations to be made at Japanese American National Museum, 100 North Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012.
