"Between 1942 and 1945, thousands of soldiers of Japanese descent served in the US armed forces as members of the 100th Infantry, 442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT), and the Military Intelligence Service (MIS). The contributions of these men have since been recognized in a number of locations with honor rolls, memorials to the fallen, monuments to the units, and living memorials"
