A video production by Michael Izumi of “Zoom Video” will be presented detailing the July 5-16, 2019, tour to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Nisei fighting in France during WWII. The Tour started in Nice, stopping in villages for ceremonies commemorating what the Nisei soldiers dubbed “The Champagne Campaign”, then moved on to the Vosges for visits to Bruyeres, Biffontaine, and sites around the battle to save the Lost Battalion. After visits to the American Cemetery at Epinal and the American Cemetery at Lorraine, the group ended their trip in Paris.
