Even as the US government was forcing Japanese-Americans into internment camps, more than 20,000 young men of Japanese descent volunteered for service in World War II. Many served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a unit which fought so hard and suffered so many casualties that they earned the nickname The Purple Heart Battalion. Learn about the formation of the 442nd RCT, their battle history, and a Wisconsin veteran named Akira Toki who fought with them in Europe.
