Summary
A documentary about the Japanese American men who were incarcerated in concentration camps, enlisted in the U.S. military, and volunteered to become linguists in the Military Intelligence Service in the Pacific Theater of WWII. The film focuses on the experience of Roy Matsumoto and his personal journey -- from being born an American, raised in Japan, sent to the Jerome, Arkansas concentration camp as a young man, to enlisting in the U.S. Army and becoming a hero in fighting the Japanese Army in Burma as part of the U.S. military unit known as Merrill's Marauders. As part of the project, a classroom-based curriculum to accompany the film was developed by Karen Matsumoto. The film and curriculum were disseminated in California public schools. Film showings in California and Washington were organized
