Oh I remember that being there, and being way off the beaten


touristy path with my girl.

Yah; they were not in love with our pasty/haole look.

Tough they did make some wild-ass okolehao.
Sit you right down too if you drank much at all.

and for the camps... that's objectification, not speculation. Which I'd never read/heard of before.

(though the most decorated USofA combat regiment
is still the Neshi Japanese one that fought the i-ties and jerry like an F'n dawgg in Italy under Gen.Clark)

"The 442nd Regiment was the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of American warfare.[3] The 4,000 men who initially made up the unit in April 1943 had to be replaced nearly 2.5 times. In total, about 14,000 men served, earning 9,486 Purple Hearts. The unit was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations (five earned in one month).[4]:201 Twenty-one of its members were awarded Medals of Honor.[2] Its motto was "Go for Broke".

basically 2 in 3 got shot.
For dear old U.Sam.

"Go For Broke" indeed!

wow,
