Go for Broke

I attended the 99th Annual Rotary Convention in Los Angeles in the latter part of June. When I was there we were hosted by two local clubs, the Rotary Clubs of San Gabriel and Alhambra. They took us to the Japanese-American Museum and while there I became acquainted with several veterans of World War II. They were among the homogenous units of Japanese-Americans that served with tremendous distinction during that war. Their deeds were immortalized in film and there is an impressive monument near the museum. Both are located in Little Tokyo.

I enjoyed immensely my conversation with them and felt honored to know them, considering the tremendous good accomplished. To learn more about them visit the website of the Go For Broke National Education Center.
