During WWII, Japanese American Soldiers fought against Axis powers abroad and racial prejudice at home. 

Today, Japan and the US have progressed beyond reconciliation to become the closest of allies.

Join us to honor the service and sacrifices of Nisei Veterans. Welcome guests from the Japanese Ground Self Defense Forces and the US 7th Infantry Division as we celebrate the close relationship that the USA now shares with Japan.
