For the first time a world-famous exhibit chronicles the story of the Nisei of World War II has arrived in Hawaii.
The traveling "Go for Broke" exhibit first opened at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. on September 17, 1987.
That means the exhibit opened 200 years to the day after the signing of the U.S. Constitution.
Since then, the story of 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service has toured through 50 locations and four state capitols.
In 1945, it was World War II veteran Herbert Yanamura's surrender appeal that rang out during a cease fire saving hundreds of lives.
To this day survivors are still thanking him.
The exhibit will be on display in Hawaii through Mid-June.
It runs at the Hawaii State Capitol through Wednesday.
Then the exhibit moves to UH West Oahu, Honolulu Hale and finally, the Maui Nisei Veterans Memorial Center.
