Author, professor, and MIS veteran Edwin Nakasone will moderate a discussion with fellow veterans Bruce Kaji and Hitoshi Sameshima about their roles in the rebuilding of Japan after the end of World War II.

MIS was a U.S. Army unit mostly composed of Nisei who provided translation, interpretation, and interrogation services during the war in Asia and the Pacific.

This program is presented by JANM and the Go For Broke National Education Center in conjunction with the exhibition “Go For Broke: Japanese American Soldiers Fighting on Two Fronts.”
