Japanese-Americans Reunited With Texas Veterans They Rescued

Breaking News

World War II veterans of a Texas infantry regiment will reunite this weekend with a Japanese-American combat outfit that rescued them from German forces surrounding them.

On Oct. 30, 1944, the all-Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team broke through the German lines in the Vosges Mountains of northern France and relieved 1st Battalion, 141st Regiment, 36th Infantry Division.

Together, the veterans will mark the 65th anniversary of the rescue at a Sunday fundraising gala hosted by the National Japanese American Memorial Foundation at Houston's Hyatt Regency Hotel.
