Commander's Column

by Walt Tanimoto & Warren Higa
December 2019, Volume 69, Issue 11

Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year!

2019 was an exceptionally good year for our organizations and we wish to share our good will and spirits with the community and our partners.  Our culminating success for 2019 is being awarded the Japanese Foreign Ministers Commendation to the NVC. 

Our success is due in large part to the men and women Nisei Veterans whose shoulders we stand on.  Their courage, their service, and their support to our country during WWII established the foundation that enables the follow-on generations to be so successful today. Thank you to our veteran members, and family and members in the NVC Foundation for their support and for continuing the legacy of the Nisei Veterans.   And thank you to our community partners and friends who have supported the NVC and NVC Foundation from our beginnings in 1946 for the NVC and 2005 for the NVC Foundation!

We also want to thank all first responders and military service members for keeping us safe and for defending freedom around the world.

Happy Holiday Season! With the warm appreciation of our association we extend our very best wishes for the season and our sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout the year!

Best Regards,

Walter T. Tanimoto, Commander
