JAMsj and the Contemporary Asian Theater Scene (CATS) present a special screening of the film, "Valor with Honor," an independent documentary film based on more than 35 interviews of Japanese American veterans who served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during WWII. This small segregated unit of 3,500 men is the most decorated American unit for its size and length of service. By the end of WWII, the 442nd would be awarded with 7 Presidential Unit Citations, 21 Medals of Honor, more than 500 Silver Stars, and more than 9,000 Purple Hearts.
 
The 85-minute documentary film by Burt Takeuchi describes the harrowing stories of the 442nd's battles in Italy, the Lost Battalion Rescue in France, the assault up Mount Folgorito, and the holocaust at Dachau, Germany, at the close of WWII. The film concludes with the vets' bittersweet return home to America. The entire film is woven through with emotional stories told by the veterans themselves.

Admission is free, but reservations are required as space as limited. To reserve a space, email info@jamsj.org or catstheater@gmail.com, or call (408) 294-3138 or (408) 867-4525.
