About “Rescuing the Lost Battalion”
During World War II, Japanese-Americans formed the 442 Infantry Regiment to show their loyalty to the United States. Despite discrimination at home, they served with distinction on the Western Front and were regarded as heroes. This documentary explores their bravery through recollections of its members and confidential records.
To attend, please RSVP to Sal Miwa by Friday May 25th. – Sal Miwa firstname.lastname@example.org
