On June 25, 2018, the California State Senate will be passing a resolution honoring the 75th anniversary of the formation of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The Go For Broke National Education Center wishes to extend an invitation to our veterans, families and friends in Hawaii in hopes that they can join us in Sacramento for this event.

For any questions and to attend, please contact Ms. Erin Sato of the Go For Broke NEC.
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 and their parents and relatives living on the West Coast. They were placed in barbed wired internment camps, leaving behind property and possession.
