The Japanese American Veterans Association, Inc. (JAVA), is a fraternal and educational organization. JAVA works to honor and preserve the memory of Japanese Americans who served during World War II while many of their families and friends were imprisoned in America’s concentration camps at the direction of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Most notable are those who valiantly served in the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and Military Intelligence Service. JAVA uses lessons learned from the past to foster patriotism, loyalty, and honor today. We conduct educational outreach programs that emphasize the contributions of Japanese American war veterans by giving speeches, and participating in discussion panels for civic, religious, military and educational groups. As part of our educational mission, JAVA offers academic scholarships. We also honor and remember the Japanese Americans who served in the US military during World War II by sponsoring and participating in Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and other civic activities honoring veterans.
