Onyxruby, angryjd, JohnnyAqua, thanks for your answers!

onyxruby: The Japanese soldiers who served were often treated very poorly and had very high rates of distinguished service. Anyone who did that deserves respect and it was unfortunate that it took so long for them military to give them their due.

It's a good point. I read that at least 2-3 enlisted members of the 442nd of Japanese ancestry were given field commissions. Very well deserved, but I was pleasantly surprised that the military at least did that much at the time.

If you live in San Diego, you really ought to try to get tickets to this


It's playing at the Old Globe until this Sunday, then it's going off to Broadway. When it comes to your town, go see it.
