The NVC Foundation Memorial Wall dedication ceremony to honor Japanese American Veterans and Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII was held on September 5th at the NVC Hall. Music entertainment was provided by the Minidoka Swing Band.
Saturday, September 4th the NVC Hall was a place for friends to get together, eat their bento, look around and find friends to talk to...and just enjoy themselves. It was like an "Indoor Picnic". A great time was had by all at a gathering where everyone could see all their friends at a "happy occasion".
It was a beautiful morning as the sun greeted the golfers ready to enjoy some fresh air, laughter and a great assortment of golf shots. It was great to see a lot of the players back from last year and new players as well. Congratulations to all of the winners and looking forward to seeing you all next year.
As you may have heard, Congress has passed Bill S1055 which awards Japanese American WWII veterans of the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service the prestigious Congressional Gold Medal (CGM). As of this writing, President Obama will have signed the Bill...
