San Jose Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony
February 23, 2012
San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin Annex
The members of the 100th Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service were collectively bestowed the Congressional Gold Medal. For those who were unable to attend the Washington D.C. Ceremony in November 2011, a San Jose Ceremony was held where Congress members Zoe Lofgren, Anna Eshoo and Mike Honda conferred Congressional Gold Medal replicas to 65 Veterans, 44 widows and 50 next-of-kin family representatives. Over 750 total attendees packed the Betsuin Annex to the rafters to celebrate this occasion.
The JACL organization is proud to have played our part in organizing and executing this celebration in honor of these deserving Japanese American veterans.
