If World War II hadn’t broken out, Iwao Yonemitsu might have become a teacher.
A follow up story about nisei veterans receiving the French Legion of Honor Award for their efforts to liberate France from Nazi forces in World War II. Only a few veterans of the famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team/100th Battalion are still alive. This was one of the most highly decorated combat units in World War II–Even more amazing is that this feat was accomplished while many of the veterans’ families were interned in Hawaii and on the U.S. mainland.
