Story
Japanese Americans suffered racial discrimination and prejudice in their homeland USA.Their worst suffering began after the attack on Pearl Harbor, when the U.S. government reclassified them as enemy aliens and relocated them to internment camps. Soldiers of the 442nd RCT risked their lives at the European front to prove loyalty with their blood. Members of the Military Intelligence Service suffered as they fought in the Pacific region war front, including the homeland of their parents and relatives. Some were on the opposite side of their own brothers, who were forced to fight by Japan, and who failed to return home.
