442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Infantry Battalion, Military Intelligence Service (MIS)

Formed during World War II, these three US Military units were comprised of Japanese-American young men from the US mainland, Hawaii and from ten internment camps such as Topaz. Despite heated racial attitudes, many young men volunteered to show their loyalty to their country. Their valor and fighting spirit became known throughout the US military. The rescue of the Lost Battalion in France typified their bravery - in fierce combat they suffered huge casualties (199 KIA or missing, hundred wounded in action) while rescuing 211 men of the Texas Battalion. During the war they received over 16,000 decorations to become the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in US military history. However, only a single Congressional Medal of Honor was given due to racial overtones. This was corrected in 2000 when President Clinton upgraded 20 Distinguished Silver Cross Medals to Congressional Medal of Honor awards to 20 Japanese-American veterans, many of whom were in their 80s. Some were given posthumously. (list of names)
