Get Involved

Get involved with the Nisei Veterans Legacy (NVL) and help us carry out our mission to preserve, perpetuate and share the legacy of the Americans of Japanese Ancestry (AJA) who served in the US armed forces in World War II.

Please consider donating to the NVL or volunteering your time. Volunteers are able to engage in different activities, such as, being a docent at NVL Traveling Exhibits (Go For Broke, Japanese American Soldiers Fighting on Two Fronts), assisting with set up or take down of the traveling exhibit, directing people and passing out programs at annual events such as the Joint Memorial Service, assisting with mail outs, and manning refreshment tables at events.

In addition, volunteers can join anyone of our NVL committees to assist with coordination and planning of various projects. As a volunteer, you will develop a deeper understanding of the courage and dedication of the veterans of the four distinguished Nisei units – the 100th Infantry Battalion (Separate), 442nd Regimental Combat Team, Military Intelligence Service, and 1399 Engineer Construction Battalion.

Donate

If you cannot volunteer your time and wish to contribute to our efforts to perpetuate the legacy of the Nisei veterans, please consider a donation. Your donation will be used to fund the Eric Saul's Go For Broke Exhibit as it travels around the state and to Japan in 2016, this website, other events and exhibits that we sponsor, and future plans as an educational resource for teachers and students.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership to the NVL is open to anyone who supports the mission of the NVL. If you share the belief that we need to preserve, perpetuate and share the legacy and contributions of the 100th, 442nd, MIS, and 1399th Nisei soldiers, please consider becoming a member. The NVL has many ongoing projects and educational programs including traveling exhibits, permanent displays, historical documentation and website content development. There is also an annual memorial service to honor the Nisei soldiers of World War II. Your involvement will make a difference.
