A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Go For Broke National Education Center’s exhibition was attended by hundreds of supporters and community leaders.
For more than 25 years, the Go For Broke Educational Center’s has educated the public about the stories of the Japanese American soldiers of World War II and preserved the Nisei soldier legacy. More than 33,000 Japanese-American soldiers served in the U.S. Army during World War II. The Go For Broke Center commemorates the heroic role of the segregated Japanese Americans – in some of the most decorated units in World War II — including the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, Military Intelligence Service, 522nd Field Artillery Battalion, 232nd Combat Engineer Company, and the 1399th Engineer Construction Battalion.
In 2010, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded to the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service.
