Who We Are
As Americans of Japanese ancestry, our grandfathers, fathers, uncles and friends of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team fought two battles in World War II: prejudice at home and the enemy in Europe. At the outbreak of the war, Japanese Americans faced suspicion and distrust. Executive Order 9066 by President Roosevelt sealed the fate of Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. They were placed in barbed wired internment camps, leaving behind property and possession.
