3 Nisei veterans from WWII attend unveiling ceremony

Attendees of an unveiling ceremony on June 14 give a standing ovation to Nisei veterans from World War II. Second-generation Japanese Americans served in various capacities for the 100th Infantry Battalion, Military Intelligence Service and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during the war while their families remained incarcerated in one of the various internment camps throughout the U.S. Pictured, in the front row from left, are Cathy Yasuda, Martha Mizuta, WWII Nisei Veterans Jim Mizuta, Tom Kamimae and Terou Yano, and Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army for the State of Oregon Craig A. Wilhelm. Yasuda said Tom Murata, another Nisei veteran from WWII was unable to make it, but believes the four men to be the last remaining living Nisei soldiers in the Western Treasure Valley area.
