    • 5. Continuing
      • The Nisei went through a difficult time during schools, like being tortured.
      • According to one of the Nisei soldiers, “training at the MIS schools was always intense, a very severe form of training, a crash course.”
      • Even though it was hard, the MIS faced great odds and a great personal sacrifice, but they still did what they were suppose to do.

      • August,1945, the MIS were involved in the occupation of Japan.
      • Performed valuable resources in the Administration of Japan

      • These “warriors in silence” not only did their job in secrecy but they did it great. :)
    • 8. MIS
      • The MIS played a BIG role in the war.
      • They did their part by going to MIS schools and a few years later, helping the occupation of Japan.
      • They served our country greatly, having an impact on the war, we thank them gratefully.
      • According to Colin Powell,” their service to this country is a reminder to all of us that being an American is not a matter of race or national origin, but a conviction of the heart.”
