Learning about the 442nd & the 100th: Day 1

Students got to hear Dr. Val Matsunaga share her father’s experience (Toshi Kubota) while he was in the 442nd.  Dr. Matsunaga’s objectives for the students were to hear about Grandpa Toshi’s unique journey from enlisting to discharge, name what traits Grandpa Tosh had post war and to reflect on what their legacy will be.  Besides sharing her father’s story, Dr. Matsunaga also brought her father’s artifacts for the students to see.  Thank you to Mrs. Ramona Ho for sharing her knowledge of the 442nd & the 100th as well as to Mr. Kyle Watanabe of the Nisei Education Center in Wailuku and Dr. Matsunaga for spending time with the students today.
