Nikkei Community Internship's 10th Anniversary!


Go For Broke

NCI 2009 Southern California interns visit the Go For Broke National Education Center and chat with Nisei World War II veterans.

"Our mission is to share the legacy of the Japanese American soldiers of World War II who served in segregated units and fought with unmatched bravery in Europe and the Pacific Theater.

Through the generous support of our community, we have recorded the life stories of over 1,150 of these veterans; taught over 3,000 educators in Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, California, Texas, Maryland and Virginia; reached over 100,000 students through our web-based digital curriculum; and welcomed over 100,000 visitors to the Go For Broke Monument near downtown Los Angeles.

Our work continues as we reach out to more states, more students, more citizens to share a remarkable story of humble men who, in the words of President Clinton, '...did much more than prove they were Americans; they made our nation more American. They pushed us toward that more perfect union of our founder's dreams.'"
