The 442nd Regimental Combat Team of the United States Army was a regimental size fighting unit composed almost entirely of American soldiers of Japanese descent who fought in World War II, despite the fact many of their families were subject to internment. The 442nd, beginning in 1944, fought primarily in Europe during World War II. The 442nd was a self-sufficient force, and fought with uncommon distinction in Italy, southern France, and Germany. The 442nd is considered to be the most decorated infantry regiment in the history of the United States Army.
Here’s the list of decorations received:
21 Medals of Honor
52 Distinguished Service Crosses
1 Distinguished Service Medal
560 Silver Stars
22 Legion of Merit Medals
15 Soldier’s Medals
4,000 Bronze Stars
9,486 Purple Hearts
Here’s how they were received upon returning home:
However, the unit’s exemplary service and many decorations did not change the attitudes of the general U.S. population to people of Japanese descent after World War II. Veterans were welcomed home by signs that read “No Japs Allowed” and “No Japs Wanted”, denied service in shops and restaurants, and had their homes and property vandalized.
So. Thousands of Japanese Americans volunteered for service, some of them while in prison camps in their own country, to fight against Nazi genocide, and in doing so are awarded more honors than any other unit, ever.
And when they returned home, their reward? Hate crimes.
