The National Veterans Network will present a virtual event to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Nisei Soldier Congressional Gold Medal on Tuesday, November 2, 2021.

Ten years ago on November 2, 2011, the United States Congress awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award, to the United States Army’s 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd RCT and Military Intelligence Service for their bravery, valor and dedication to country to fight for democracy abroad while facing prejudice and discrimination at home.

The video presentation and tribute will highlight the two year journey taken to secure the passage of S 1055 in U.S. Congress that led to the historic awarding of the Nisei Soldier Congressional Gold Medal on November 2, 2011 in the U.S. Capitol.

The NVN thanks the Aratani Foundation and the JA Community Foundation for sponsoring this event.
