Ed Kawamura, commander of the Kauai Veterans Council, said he knows of at least two people — Sen. Billy Fernandes and Hiroshi Azeka — who would be happy.
“When we were building this Kauai Veterans Center, we said we needed something great to go along with the building,” Kawamura said. “This (Go for Broke exhibit) is it. It’s a great exhibit for the building.”
The free “Go For Broke: Japanese American Soldiers Fighting on Two Fronts,” chronicles the Japanese-American soldiers during World War II and the beneficial socioeconomic changes which occurred in America because of their service.
Bynes Yamashita of the Nisei Veterans Legacy Center, which has an office on Oahu, said the exhibit is made possible due to the sponsorship of the Kauai Veterans Center, the Kauai Veterans Museum, Aloha Air Cargo and Stan Morinaka and the Kauai Veterans Express.
The exhibit opens at 10 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays at the Kauai Veterans Center. It is closed on Sundays.
