In this edition, Gene talks with Medal of Honor recipient George Joe Sakato, a member of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The all-Japanese American 442nd was created a year after more than 100,000 Japanese, many of them American citizens, were sent to internment camps and denied service in the U.S. Armed Forces following the attack on Pearl Harbor. The 442nd would become one of the most highly decorated units in U.S. military history, producing in all 21 Medal of Honor recipients.
