Minidoka Relocation Center

Nearly every relocation center built an Honor Roll sign listing the names of Japanese American internees serving in World War II. Minidoka's sign, which stood near the rock garden, was erected on October 14, 1943. By the war's end nearly 1,000 names were listed. On February 1, 1943, President Roosevelt activated the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a mostly Japanese American unit, which joined ranks with the 100th Infantry Battalion of the Hawaii National Guard. The combined Nisei 100th and 442nd became the most decorated regiment of its size and length of service in American history. It received 18,143 individual awards and had 9,486 casualties. Initially 1,200 Japanese Americans volunteered, but soon the combined 100th and 442nd regiments, fighting in Italy and France, swelled by the thousands. More than 16,000 Nisei also served in the Pacific and in Asia, performing invaluable tasks in the Military Intelligence Service, Women's Army Corps, and Red Cross.
