ANAHEIM — The Go For Broke National Education Center presents “Voices of Legacy” on Saturday, April 20, at 1 p.m. at Orange County Buddhist Church, 909 S. Dale Ave. in Anaheim.

During World War II, the soldiers of the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and the Military Intelligence Service were Japanese Americans determined to prove their loyalty as United States citizens. Join GFBNEC to honor these veterans and learn about their service and courage first-hand through a panel discussion with members of these segregated units with a keynote address on their continued legacy from U.S. Army Gen. David A. Bramlett (retired).
