Veteran’s Day is around the corner, and Nakayoshi salutes our Japanese American Veterans with our November Volunteer Event, helping the Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS) at their Return and Remembrance: The Legacy of Veterans of World War II and 1st Year Anniversary of the MIS Historic Learning Center in the SF Presidio. The event will have an opening ceremony followed by a luncheon for ticketed guests featuring guest speaker former Hawaii Senator Daniel Akaka.

Opened 1 year ago, the MIS Historic Learning Center is in the renovated Building 640, the actual site where secretly recruited enlisted Japanese American soldiers were trained as military linguists for the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) during WWII.
