Future Nisei Soldiers’ Exhibit at the National Museum of the United States Army


Please join us for presentations by Ms. Tammy E. Call, Director of the National Museum of the United States Army and Dr. Charles Cureton, Army Chief Curator (Acting) for the U.S. Army Center of Military History. General Eric K. Shinseki (USA-Ret.) and Christine Sato-Yamazaki, Executive Director of the National Veterans Network will also make remarks.

Ms. Call will present information about the National Army Museum which will be the only museum to tell the complete history of the U.S. Army and will serve as the capstone museum for the Army’s Museum Enterprise. The 185,000 square-foot Museum is being constructed on an 84-acre site at Fort Belvoir, Va. and will honor the service and sacrifice of all American Soldiers who have served since the Army’s inception in 1775.

Specifically, Ms. Call will share the Museum’s plans to showcase the Nisei Soldier Congressional Gold Medal in a special exhibit area of the Museum. Dr. Cureton will discuss the U.S. Army’s central artifact collection and the Army’s efforts to preserve and portray the story of Japanese American Soldiers serving during World War II. Both will welcome questions and smaller discussions following their presentations.

Due to the expected large attendance and appearance of General Shinseki it is highly recommended to RSVP.

Please contact the Japanese American Museum of San Jose at PublicPrograms@jamsj.org or call (408) 294-3138 to RSVP or to answer any questions you may have about this event.
