Christian Heimburger (Westminster, Colorado), a participant at the "Whose America? Who's American? Diversity, Civil Liberties, and Social Justice" National Conference in Denver, Colorado presented by the Japanese American National Museum.

The photo was taken at the Discover Nikkei booth in the Community Marketplace on Friday, July 4, 2008 at the Hyatt Regency, Denver.

Christian Heimburger comments:

I've celebrated the 4th of July for 31 years, but to be with these humble, heroic veterans is one of the most memorable. Truly service is patriotism. Their story must be told to remind us that patriotism is more than waving a flag; it is sacrifice.
