Near the Geffen Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) lies the Go For Broke monument in Little Tokyo that honors the Japanese American soldiers of the 442nd RCT, 100th Battalion, and MIS.

These tanabata wishes and decorations beautifully framed the memorial as part of the 1st Annual Los Angeles Tanabata Festival.
