If there is anything one can learn from war; it would be no matter what race one is, my all of them be equal when it comes time to receive their just medals. I am so happy that the few left, lived long enough to receive their medals now as a nation lets all hold their honor high and never miss a chance to tell them THANK YOU!

I want to thank these fine gentlemen for their service and for the examples they were and are to our men and young men today. If you've done any reading about the 442nd, you know they were sent into some of the worst areas, almost considered expendable and experiencing heavy losses in some cases. Hats off to you for your service and dedication to a country that didn't always treat you right.

I agree Shimlau this is an award that is long past due. Congratulations!

On Oct. 5, 2010, President Barack Obama signed legislation to grant the Congressional Gold Medal in recognition to those in the unit.

We've come along ways baby, but we're not there yet...

One of my close friends father was in the 442nd. These men are treasures and we can never forget what they or any other veteran has done. I am proud to have served under the same American flag as these men did.
