The celebration will be held at the Go For Broke Monument in Little Tokyo (major cross streets are E. Temple Street and Judge John Aiso Street). Parking is limited, so please plan accordingly.

All World War II veterans of the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and Military Intelligence, as well as widows, and next of kin of KIAs, along with one guest, will receive a complimentary admission ticket.

General admission for all others is $20/person. Due to the size of the expected crowd, we can only guarantee five (5) general admission tickets per veteran family. To register, please download the LA CGM Registration Form. Deadline for reservations is May 25, 2012.
