December 16, 2011

    On October 4, 2010, President Obama signed S-1055 into law to award the Congressional Golf Medal collectively thndto the 100 Battalion, 442 Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service (MIS), honoring their service, sacrifice and heroic deeds in defense of the United States during World War II. The official ceremony was held on November 2, 2011 in Washington D.C. to award the medals to the living vets or next of kin.

    Because many of the veterans and their families were unable to make the journey, the Oregon Nikkei Endowment (O.N.E.) and the Oregon Nisei Veterans are holding a tribute luncheon on Sunday, February 26, 2012 at the

    Multnomah Athletic Club to commemorate the bestowing of this historic award and to recognize and celebrate our local honorees (invitations forthcoming).

    In a letter of greeting to those attending the Congressional Gold Medal Gala Dinner, President Obama wrote:

    They bore the burden of defending our freedom and way of life abroad while many of

    their loved ones were interned back home. In the face of discrimination and adversity,

    their dedication to their country never wavered, and we owe a profound debt of gratitude

    to these veterans and their families.

    We hope that you will join with us to show your appreciation for their remarkable service and sacrifice by attending the tribute luncheon and by considering one of the sponsorship or donation opportunities listed on the attached

    sponsorship form. All sponsorship forms must be submitted by January 16, 2012.

     thndThe storied units of the 100 Battalion, 442 Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service never

    hesitated to answer the call of duty to defend our country and we ask your participation in honoring our local representatives of these outstanding military units.

    Thank you so very much for your attention---your consideration and support on behalf of this special event is truly appreciated.

Sincerely,

     Lynn Longfellow Mari Watanabe
