"Winning the Peace" tells the little-known story of the Japanese-language specialists of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) and their contributions in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II and in the Occupation of Japan. Mainly Japanese Americans, MIS soldiers were front-line interrogators and translators in wartime, and linked the Occupation forces and the Japanese people in the postwar period.

"Winning the Peace" features a traveling exhibit that is on loan from the National Japanese American Historical Society of San Francisco, as well as the personal stories of Chicago-area MIS veterans, told through text, images, artifacts, and video clips. "Winning the Peace" will be open to the public -without charge- from

May 4 through June 30 at the 
Japanese American Service Committee, 4427 N. Clark Street, Chicago.
