Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp monument (0712)

Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp monument (0712)
A tribute to the Japanese-Americans who volunteered for military service despite the relocation act, including the names of 25 from the Poston camp who died in service. The quote on the top of the plaque:

“To all men and women who honorably served in the United States Armed Forces in defense of this nation and its people, particularly to those Americans of Japanese ancestry, who, during World War II, fought so valiantly for their country while their parents and families were being interned in the Poston War Relocation Center without due process of law.”
