Travels & Adventures The Journey is the Destination


2013: Italy


Friends and Family of the Nisei Veterans (FFNV) 70th Anniversary Tour of Italy.


We went to visit the battlefields, memorials and towns liberated by the 100th Infantry Battalion (Separate) and the 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team. Both were segregated units made up of Japanese American soldiers.


We visited remote mountain villages, climbed Mt. Folgorito in driving rain and hail, and paid our respects at cemeteries and memorials.


At some point I will post a blog on adventures in Italy
