72 years ago today, Executive Order 9066 was signed. Earlier today, I posted a pictorial retrospective of anti-Japanese xenophobia and internment to commemorate this nation-wide Day of Remembrance. This is the third and final part of my #DayofRemembrance posts.
I present to you 12 historical images of Japanese American strength, patriotism and general awesomeness during and after internment.
Happy Veteran’s Day to all the veterans out there, and Happy Remembrance Day to all Canadian vets (read more about Japanese Canadian soldiers serving during WWI).
Thank you for your past and continuing service to these two great countries of ours.
