PROOF OF LOYALTY: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii

While citizens of Japanese heritage on the U.S. mainland were being incarcerated in detention camps, relatively few among Hawaii’s 40% Japanese population were detained, and many volunteered for military service. Drafted before Pearl Harbor, Kazuo Yamane was singled out for intelligence work and made substantial contributions to the war effort at the Pentagon and in Europe under Eisenhower. (55 min.)
