B-Roll of a sunset ceremony on-board the USS Missouri Memorial in Pearl Harbor. The ceremony honored second-generation Japanese-Americans, or Nisei, who served in the U.S. military during the Second World War. The U.S. government had removed many of the Nisei from service on the basis of their ancestry following the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor, and thousands of Nisei voluntarily joined, or rejoined, in 1943. Veterans of the 442d Regimental Combat Team, the most decorated combat unit for its size and length of service in the history of the U.S., were in attendance. Soundbites include Japanese-American veteran Ted Tsukiyama and the Commander of United States Pacific Fleet, Admiral Harry Harris. Also available in high definition.
