Nisei Veteran: Common Story, Common Bond
Two brothers – studious Tadashi “Tad” and slacker Masayuki “Mas” – were born in Seattle’s Nihonmachi, or “Japantown,” living an American life until, as teenagers, they are incarcerated with the rest of the Japanese Americans during World War II. Hoping to win their parents’ release, they volunteer for the U.S. Army. With his Japanese-language proficiency, Tad becomes a member of the Military Intelligence Service and serves in the Pacific, while Mas ends up with the famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team in Europe. Based upon the actual experiences of Nisei veterans and their stories of combat, camaraderie and sacrifice, the two brothers undergo the hell of war and its aftermath, leading to the founding of the Nisei Veterans Committee in Seattle.
