Valor with Honor  is an independent documentary film based on over 35 interviews of Japanese American veterans who served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II. 

This small segregated unit of 3500 men is the most decorated American unit for its size and length of service. By the end of WW2, the 442nd would be awarded with seven Presidential Unit Citations, 21 Medals of Honor (upgraded from DSC), over 500 Silver Stars, and over 9000 Purple Hearts. The 85 minute feature film tells the harrowing stories of 442nd's battles in Italy, the Lost Battalion Rescue in France, the assault up Mount Folgorito, and witness to the holocaust at Dachau, Germany at the close of WW2. The film concludes with the vets bittersweet return home to America. The entire film is woven through stories told by the veterans themselves. 

There will be a Q&A after the screening with the filmmaker.
