American 442nd infantry division

Welcome to Go for Broke Day!

Go For Broke Day is a day for taking a chance, giving it all you have, and leaving nothing undone. It may be a day to put all your money down when gambling, to risk everything for a new project or business endeavor, to start a new job, or take a chance on a new relationship.

The motto of the American 442nd infantry division during World War II was "Go For Broke." This division was made up of Nisei, Americans of second-generation Japanese descent. The soldiers fought in Europe and became the most decorated regiment in American history. Of the close to 14,000 that served, 9,486 received Purple Hearts. Twenty-one members received the Medal of Honor. The first to do so was Sadao Munemori, who died on April 5, 1945, after sacrificing his life to save fellow soldiers near Seravezza, Italy. There is some indication that Go For Broke Day is celebrated on April 5 because of his valor.

NEW FACES LeQuint Allen RB. Syracuse spring football practice 2022.Dennis Nett | dnett@syracuse.com


Syracuse football spring practice isn’t over yet. Who helped themselves the most? (PS; $; Mink)

Syracuse’s spring football game is in the books, but the Orange isn’t done practicing.

SU hits the field through the week, leading up to a third scrimmage on Saturday.

We got a glimpse of a new-look offense over the past month, with more install work taking place behind closed doors.

“We’ll have four days to do some things that people don’t get to see,” Dino Babers said last week on the ACC Network. “We’ll close those practices up, and those will be the thing that lead us into the start of the season.”

Who’s helped themselves heading into the summer?

Some ideas:

Sean Tucker

Tucker’s offseason started with a stint on the indoor track team, participating in the short sprint, 60-meter dash.

The effect?

“He’s a lot faster than he was last year,” Babers said, “unfortunately for everybody else.”

There’s intense anticipation for Tucker’s junior season, and yet he has been something of a forgotten commodity through an offseason that has been all about creating ways to complement the team’s star player.

He owns the school’s single-season rushing record.

He became the school’s first tailback to earn first-team All-America honors by one of the NCAA’s main selectors since Floyd Little.

He’s been so good, the school has kicked the tires on putting the fabled No. 44 back in circulation for Tucker to wear. That topic has been bandied about among various university factions but remains tied up in red tape.

Tucker has rushed for 2,122 yards through two seasons and could end his third in the Top 5 on the school’s career rushing list.

This time next year, he could be prepping for the NFL: He’ll be draft-eligible after the season.

Tucker didn’t participate in Friday’s spring game, but there’s no doubt a huge focus in 2022 will be getting the ball in his hands.

“I think he’s a better pass-catcher than what people realize,” Babers said.

“He’ll get an opportunity to do some of that this year.”

LeQuint Allen and Juwaun Price

If there’s a hard lesson that has been learned throughout Babers’ tenure, it’s this: Syracuse can only compete in the ACC if its best players stay healthy.

Takeaways from Syracuse’s spring game: Garrett Shrader’s hamstring tweak allows Justin Lamson to shine (PS; Carlson)


Syracuse quarterback Justin Lamson took advantage of Garrett Shrader’s absence to show what the Orange has waiting in the wings.

In his first substantial public performance as a Syracuse quarterback, the redshirt freshman started the Orange’s spring game at quarterback on Friday night and looked excellent, delivering on his dual-threat reputation by showcasing an accurate arm and an aptitude for running the ball.

Lamson led Syracuse’s first-team offense (minus some key pieces) against Syracuse’s defensive reserves for the first half of a scrimmage, delivering a performance sure to create optimism about his abilities and, perhaps, some distance between him and Syracuse’s quarterback options outside of Shrader.

Lamson appeared comfortable piloting the Syracuse offense -- obviously simplified for any ACC coaches recording the night’s festivities on their televisions -- and he was both on-target regularly and quick to deliver the football.

Shrader, Syracuse’s incumbent starter, did not participate. Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said he tweaked his hamstring at the end of a long run last weekend. He had been wearing sweatpants, rather than traditional practice clothing, while participating in practice drills that were open to the media this past week, an indication he was nursing a mild injury.

Syracuse Recruiting Roundup: Cedrice Paillant, Mekhai White - The Juice Online (the juice; Auger)

It was a busy week in the Syracuse football recruiting world with the Orange & Blue spring game and several offers being handed out. Let’s get right to it.

Syracuse extended an offer to Rutgers transfer Cedrice Paillant. The offensive lineman announced his decision to enter the portal on Friday via Twitter. He made six starts in 2021, and played 20 total games played with 13 starts for the Scarlet Knights across two seasons.

Syracuse also offered 2024 athlete Mekhai White from King (Va.) George. He already has 17 offers, including from Boston College, Duke, Maryland, UNC, Penn State, and Pitt.

The Orange also extended an offer to Wayland (TX) Baptist University transfer Owen Fuambu. He reports it as his first Division 1 offer.

2024 Delaware (PA) Valley High tight end Aiden Black tweeted he received an offer from Syracuse. It is his third offer, with the Orange joining Appalachian State and Maryland.

The Orange also had several visitors for the spring game. Sports Illustrated’s Mike McAllister provided a full list, but here are some of the 2023 prospects and their tweets from their visits.

ACC Atlantic coach thinks his team is as good as any in the division (theclemsoninsider.com; Staff)

Syracuse completely ignored.

This ACC Atlantic Division coach is confident in his football team heading into the 2022 season.

Despite his team’s 6-7 record last season, including a 4-4 mark in ACC play, Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said during an appearance on Packer and Durham on ACC Network this week that he feels Louisville has “just as good a team as any” in the Atlantic Division, including Wake Forest, NC State, Boston College, Florida State and Clemson, which the Cardinals lost to, 30-24, at Cardinal Stadium last season.

You can read what Mark Packer had to say about the ACC Atlantic Division on Packer and Durham this week and Satterfield’s response below:

Packer: “You don’t worry about noise or hype. That’s for us idiots in the media. But I look at the Atlantic Division in the ACC for ’22, and Clemson’s Clemson, right. They do their thing. Wake’s got everybody and their brother back. Dave Clawson, of course, what he did last year, winning the division. Dave Doeren’s got a thousand guys back. NC State, I’ve seen them as high as the top 10. Those are three. And then I love what Hafley’s doing at BC. Sounds like you are loaded and just waiting in the weeds. Norvell’s doing his thing at Florida State. I mean, the Atlantic Division of the ACC … and I know they will have the national narrative of nobody who pays attention to the conference, ‘it’s Clemson, everybody else,’ which is just stupid. I really sense that the Atlantic Division this upcoming season has a chance to be filthy good. I mean, really, incredibly competitive.”

Satterfield: “Yeah, I agree. You start mentioning those teams, and you’re like, ‘Well, that’s true, yeah, wow.’ I mean, there’s a lot of good players coming back on our side, which is unfortunate. We’re sitting in that side and there’s a lot of good players and a lot of good coaches. You start thinking, NC State will be as talented as any team out there, with a ton of experience and won a lot of games last year. For us, fortunately, NC State comes to Louisville. Wake Forest comes here. We do have to go down to Clemson, which we played them down to the wire last year, which I think gave our club a lot of confidence. BC’s a great program. It’s interesting. Florida State is a good program. They’re coming up here as well. We play them early, third game.

“So, it’s going to be fun to watch, and I feel like we’ve got just as good a team as any of those teams you just mentioned. We’ll be right there, and really it’s going to come down to who’s going to show up on those days you play, who’s the most hungry and who’s got a great plan and who’s going to show up to go out and win that day. But it’s going to be very, very competitive, particularly in our side of the conference.”


Forget ACC title, Pitt football seeking national championship (audacy.com; podcast; Hathhorn)


“What happened last year, I don’t remember,” Pitt Head Coach Pat Narduzzi quipped on the first day of Spring practice.

“This is 2022. It’s a different team, we are going to prepare the same way. That’s the name of the game, get better every day and have fun. What we did last year doesn’t really matter, it won’t help us win a game this year. The confidence will be high, but it doesn’t matter.”

“Those were great times, but those are behind us,” said senior Deslin Alexandre. “Now we are up to a new season, we are trying to fine tune little details that got us there.”

The Blue-Gold Spring game is Saturday at Heinz Field. How will we know from that or how does Narduzzi know from practice they are approaching it the correct way?

“The only way you gage that is how they practice,” Narduzzi said. “Do they think they are too good to practice? Do we have a different attitude?”

“The attitude has been let’s go to work. We don’t talk about it at all.”

“I think every year your goal is to win a championship,” said sophomore tight end Gavin Bartholomew. “I don’t think it’s anything special coming off of it. I think it should be the goal every year. We are ready to go back.”

“Same mentality as last year, give it all we got,” said tackle Carter Warren. “Bring that dog play-by-play and at the end, we will be on top.”

“The goal for us is national champions. We are working so hard, coming in every day, putting in that extra film, extra time just to get there. I think the goal this year is national champions.”

He’s not the only one talking about that goal. Sophomore Rodney Hammond, Jr. discussing ‘winning a natty’. How do they take that step from ACC Champs to the best team in the country?

“Detail and discipline, attention to detail in everything we do,” Alexandre said. “A little step, a little strike that you don’t really see on film but go a long way to make a play.”

“We can take it further schematically from an understanding standpoint and build on what we’ve done here for the last three years with these kids,” said offensive line coach Dave Borbely. “I think we can improve all of them fundamentally, technique-wise. I think we still have a long way to go. I really do. It’s not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. I think we can take it a long way yet.”

Here’s a shorter version from Bartholomew.

“We need to work our asses off and don’t stop.”

Ex-Syracuse AD Daryl Gross sues CNY tech giant for $1M over Super Bowl stadium deal (PS; $; Dowty)


Former Syracuse University athletic director Daryl Gross scored a lucrative side job during his tenure at SU: $10,000 a month to connect local wireless innovator JMA Wireless with sports venues looking for fast, secure wireless networks.

That relationship, formalized in a contract in June 2014, helped JMA reach the biggest stage in the sporting world: a contract to provide 5G infrastructure at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, home of the 2022 Super Bowl.

But Gross is now suing JMA for at least $1 million, saying the town of Clay-based company cheated him out of his cut for helping land the contract at the $5.5 billion stadium.

JMA’s lawyer noted in court filings Friday that the company paid Gross tens of thousands of dollars for his services over the years, and pointed out that he signed and deposited one final $100,000 check two years before filing a lawsuit.

The contract dispute provides a rare peek into some heavyweight wheeling and dealing. Gross was retained to help JMA land stadium deals. That arrangement profited both parties richly for years, including contracts at other sports venues such as the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa, the lawsuit states.

It is unfortunate that the Carrier Dome still does not have one of those fancy 5G setup JMA makes so well.

Would love to see JMA become a sponsor for SU athletics and use the dome as a place to test new technology and approaches. Maybe even add a course or two to the SU curriculum on how their technology works. I bet they could use some well trained people coming out of college every year.

Perhaps some day.

I don't think that is a picture of the 442nd Infanty Division. The 442nd fought in the European theater (Italy, France and Germany). The picture above appears to be in the tropics of the Pacific and I am pretty sure those are Japanese army uniforms, not WWII US army uniforms.

The 442nd:

2nd_Battalion%2C_442nd_RCT_near_Saint-Di%C3%A9_1944-11-13.jpg


442_regimental_combat_team.jpg


From "Flames of War:"

Fearing that if Hawaii was invaded the Nisei in the National Guard would not remain loyal to the U.S., General Emmons, Commander of the U.S. Army in Hawaii, requested that the Japanese-American Soldiers be formed into a Hawaiian Provisional Battalion and sent to the mainland. The Nisei, now the 100th Infantry Battalion, did so well in training that President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the formation of a Japanese-American segregated combat unit.

This unit would eventually become known as the 442nd Infantry Regimental Combat Team whose motto became “Go For Broke”.

The 442nd was a fully self-sufficient fighting force consisting of 1st, 2nd, 3rd Infantry Battalions, the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion, the 232nd Engineering Company, an Anti-Tank Company, a Cannon Company, and non-combat support. They began training in Camp Shelby, Mississippi.

By September 26, 1943, the 100th Infantry Battalion entered combat in Italy where they led the advance on Monte Milleto. The 100th Battalion was attached to the 34th Infantry Division where the 100th facing heavy resistance captured their first objective the capture of Benevento, an important rail center and road intersection. The men of the 100th Battalion advanced 15 miles in 24 hours fighting both day and night against heavy enemy resistance.

From Wikipedia:

Arriving in the European Theatre, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, with its three infantry battalions, one artillery battalion and associated HQ and service companies, was attached to the 34th Infantry Division. On 11 June 1944, near Civitavecchia, Italy, the existing 100th Infantry Battalion, another all-Nisei fighting unit which had already been in combat since September 1943, was transferred from the 133rd Infantry Regiment to the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Because of its combat record, the 100th was allowed to keep their original designation, with the 442nd renaming its 1st Infantry Battalion as its 100th Infantry Battalion.
Thank you. Google images has screwed up again. Apologies to the 442nd!

American 442nd infantry division

Welcome to Go for Broke Day!

Go For Broke Day is a day for taking a chance, giving it all you have, and leaving nothing undone. It may be a day to put all your money down when gambling, to risk everything for a new project or business endeavor, to start a new job, or take a chance on a new relationship.

The motto of the American 442nd infantry division during World War II was "Go For Broke." This division was made up of Nisei, Americans of second-generation Japanese descent. The soldiers fought in Europe and became the most decorated regiment in American history. Of the close to 14,000 that served, 9,486 received Purple Hearts. Twenty-one members received the Medal of Honor. The first to do so was Sadao Munemori, who died on April 5, 1945, after sacrificing his life to save fellow soldiers near Seravezza, Italy. There is some indication that Go For Broke Day is celebrated on April 5 because of his valor.

NEW FACES LeQuint Allen RB. Syracuse spring football practice 2022.Dennis Nett | dnett@syracuse.com


Syracuse football spring practice isn’t over yet. Who helped themselves the most? (PS; $; Mink)

Syracuse’s spring football game is in the books, but the Orange isn’t done practicing.

SU hits the field through the week, leading up to a third scrimmage on Saturday.

We got a glimpse of a new-look offense over the past month, with more install work taking place behind closed doors.

“We’ll have four days to do some things that people don’t get to see,” Dino Babers said last week on the ACC Network. “We’ll close those practices up, and those will be the thing that lead us into the start of the season.”

Who’s helped themselves heading into the summer?

Some ideas:

Sean Tucker

Tucker’s offseason started with a stint on the indoor track team, participating in the short sprint, 60-meter dash.

The effect?

“He’s a lot faster than he was last year,” Babers said, “unfortunately for everybody else.”

There’s intense anticipation for Tucker’s junior season, and yet he has been something of a forgotten commodity through an offseason that has been all about creating ways to complement the team’s star player.

He owns the school’s single-season rushing record.

He became the school’s first tailback to earn first-team All-America honors by one of the NCAA’s main selectors since Floyd Little.

He’s been so good, the school has kicked the tires on putting the fabled No. 44 back in circulation for Tucker to wear. That topic has been bandied about among various university factions but remains tied up in red tape.

Tucker has rushed for 2,122 yards through two seasons and could end his third in the Top 5 on the school’s career rushing list.

This time next year, he could be prepping for the NFL: He’ll be draft-eligible after the season.

Tucker didn’t participate in Friday’s spring game, but there’s no doubt a huge focus in 2022 will be getting the ball in his hands.

“I think he’s a better pass-catcher than what people realize,” Babers said.

“He’ll get an opportunity to do some of that this year.”

LeQuint Allen and Juwaun Price

If there’s a hard lesson that has been learned throughout Babers’ tenure, it’s this: Syracuse can only compete in the ACC if its best players stay healthy.

Takeaways from Syracuse’s spring game: Garrett Shrader’s hamstring tweak allows Justin Lamson to shine (PS; Carlson)


Syracuse quarterback Justin Lamson took advantage of Garrett Shrader’s absence to show what the Orange has waiting in the wings.

In his first substantial public performance as a Syracuse quarterback, the redshirt freshman started the Orange’s spring game at quarterback on Friday night and looked excellent, delivering on his dual-threat reputation by showcasing an accurate arm and an aptitude for running the ball.

Lamson led Syracuse’s first-team offense (minus some key pieces) against Syracuse’s defensive reserves for the first half of a scrimmage, delivering a performance sure to create optimism about his abilities and, perhaps, some distance between him and Syracuse’s quarterback options outside of Shrader.

Lamson appeared comfortable piloting the Syracuse offense -- obviously simplified for any ACC coaches recording the night’s festivities on their televisions -- and he was both on-target regularly and quick to deliver the football.

Shrader, Syracuse’s incumbent starter, did not participate. Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said he tweaked his hamstring at the end of a long run last weekend. He had been wearing sweatpants, rather than traditional practice clothing, while participating in practice drills that were open to the media this past week, an indication he was nursing a mild injury.

Syracuse Recruiting Roundup: Cedrice Paillant, Mekhai White - The Juice Online (the juice; Auger)

It was a busy week in the Syracuse football recruiting world with the Orange & Blue spring game and several offers being handed out. Let’s get right to it.

Syracuse extended an offer to Rutgers transfer Cedrice Paillant. The offensive lineman announced his decision to enter the portal on Friday via Twitter. He made six starts in 2021, and played 20 total games played with 13 starts for the Scarlet Knights across two seasons.

Syracuse also offered 2024 athlete Mekhai White from King (Va.) George. He already has 17 offers, including from Boston College, Duke, Maryland, UNC, Penn State, and Pitt.

The Orange also extended an offer to Wayland (TX) Baptist University transfer Owen Fuambu. He reports it as his first Division 1 offer.

2024 Delaware (PA) Valley High tight end Aiden Black tweeted he received an offer from Syracuse. It is his third offer, with the Orange joining Appalachian State and Maryland.

The Orange also had several visitors for the spring game. Sports Illustrated’s Mike McAllister provided a full list, but here are some of the 2023 prospects and their tweets from their visits.

ACC Atlantic coach thinks his team is as good as any in the division (theclemsoninsider.com; Staff)

Syracuse completely ignored.

This ACC Atlantic Division coach is confident in his football team heading into the 2022 season.

Despite his team’s 6-7 record last season, including a 4-4 mark in ACC play, Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said during an appearance on Packer and Durham on ACC Network this week that he feels Louisville has “just as good a team as any” in the Atlantic Division, including Wake Forest, NC State, Boston College, Florida State and Clemson, which the Cardinals lost to, 30-24, at Cardinal Stadium last season.

You can read what Mark Packer had to say about the ACC Atlantic Division on Packer and Durham this week and Satterfield’s response below:

Packer: “You don’t worry about noise or hype. That’s for us idiots in the media. But I look at the Atlantic Division in the ACC for ’22, and Clemson’s Clemson, right. They do their thing. Wake’s got everybody and their brother back. Dave Clawson, of course, what he did last year, winning the division. Dave Doeren’s got a thousand guys back. NC State, I’ve seen them as high as the top 10. Those are three. And then I love what Hafley’s doing at BC. Sounds like you are loaded and just waiting in the weeds. Norvell’s doing his thing at Florida State. I mean, the Atlantic Division of the ACC … and I know they will have the national narrative of nobody who pays attention to the conference, ‘it’s Clemson, everybody else,’ which is just stupid. I really sense that the Atlantic Division this upcoming season has a chance to be filthy good. I mean, really, incredibly competitive.”

Satterfield: “Yeah, I agree. You start mentioning those teams, and you’re like, ‘Well, that’s true, yeah, wow.’ I mean, there’s a lot of good players coming back on our side, which is unfortunate. We’re sitting in that side and there’s a lot of good players and a lot of good coaches. You start thinking, NC State will be as talented as any team out there, with a ton of experience and won a lot of games last year. For us, fortunately, NC State comes to Louisville. Wake Forest comes here. We do have to go down to Clemson, which we played them down to the wire last year, which I think gave our club a lot of confidence. BC’s a great program. It’s interesting. Florida State is a good program. They’re coming up here as well. We play them early, third game.

“So, it’s going to be fun to watch, and I feel like we’ve got just as good a team as any of those teams you just mentioned. We’ll be right there, and really it’s going to come down to who’s going to show up on those days you play, who’s the most hungry and who’s got a great plan and who’s going to show up to go out and win that day. But it’s going to be very, very competitive, particularly in our side of the conference.”


Forget ACC title, Pitt football seeking national championship (audacy.com; podcast; Hathhorn)

“What happened last year, I don’t remember,” Pitt Head Coach Pat Narduzzi quipped on the first day of Spring practice.

“This is 2022. It’s a different team, we are going to prepare the same way. That’s the name of the game, get better every day and have fun. What we did last year doesn’t really matter, it won’t help us win a game this year. The confidence will be high, but it doesn’t matter.”

“Those were great times, but those are behind us,” said senior Deslin Alexandre. “Now we are up to a new season, we are trying to fine tune little details that got us there.”

The Blue-Gold Spring game is Saturday at Heinz Field. How will we know from that or how does Narduzzi know from practice they are approaching it the correct way?

“The only way you gage that is how they practice,” Narduzzi said. “Do they think they are too good to practice? Do we have a different attitude?”

“The attitude has been let’s go to work. We don’t talk about it at all.”

“I think every year your goal is to win a championship,” said sophomore tight end Gavin Bartholomew. “I don’t think it’s anything special coming off of it. I think it should be the goal every year. We are ready to go back.”

“Same mentality as last year, give it all we got,” said tackle Carter Warren. “Bring that dog play-by-play and at the end, we will be on top.”

“The goal for us is national champions. We are working so hard, coming in every day, putting in that extra film, extra time just to get there. I think the goal this year is national champions.”

He’s not the only one talking about that goal. Sophomore Rodney Hammond, Jr. discussing ‘winning a natty’. How do they take that step from ACC Champs to the best team in the country?

“Detail and discipline, attention to detail in everything we do,” Alexandre said. “A little step, a little strike that you don’t really see on film but go a long way to make a play.”

“We can take it further schematically from an understanding standpoint and build on what we’ve done here for the last three years with these kids,” said offensive line coach Dave Borbely. “I think we can improve all of them fundamentally, technique-wise. I think we still have a long way to go. I really do. It’s not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. I think we can take it a long way yet.”

Here’s a shorter version from Bartholomew.

“We need to work our asses off and don’t stop.”

Ex-Syracuse AD Daryl Gross sues CNY tech giant for $1M over Super Bowl stadium deal (PS; $; Dowty)

Former Syracuse University athletic director Daryl Gross scored a lucrative side job during his tenure at SU: $10,000 a month to connect local wireless innovator JMA Wireless with sports venues looking for fast, secure wireless networks.

That relationship, formalized in a contract in June 2014, helped JMA reach the biggest stage in the sporting world: a contract to provide 5G infrastructure at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, home of the 2022 Super Bowl.

But Gross is now suing JMA for at least $1 million, saying the town of Clay-based company cheated him out of his cut for helping land the contract at the $5.5 billion stadium.

JMA’s lawyer noted in court filings Friday that the company paid Gross tens of thousands of dollars for his services over the years, and pointed out that he signed and deposited one final $100,000 check two years before filing a lawsuit.

The contract dispute provides a rare peek into some heavyweight wheeling and dealing. Gross was retained to help JMA land stadium deals. That arrangement profited both parties richly for years, including contracts at other sports venues such as the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa, the lawsuit states.

I don't think that is a picture of the 442nd Infanty Division. The 442nd fought in the European theater (Italy, France and Germany). The picture above appears to be in the tropics of the Pacific, and I am pretty sure those are Japanese army uniforms, not WWII US army uniforms.

The 442nd:

2nd_Battalion%2C_442nd_RCT_near_Saint-Di%C3%A9_1944-11-13.jpg



442_regimental_combat_team.jpg



From "Flames of War:"

Fearing that if Hawaii was invaded the Nisei in the National Guard would not remain loyal to the U.S., General Emmons, Commander of the U.S. Army in Hawaii, requested that the Japanese-American Soldiers be formed into a Hawaiian Provisional Battalion and sent to the mainland. The Nisei, now the 100th Infantry Battalion, did so well in training that President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the formation of a Japanese-American segregated combat unit.

This unit would eventually become known as the 442nd Infantry Regimental Combat Team whose motto became “Go For Broke”.

The 442nd was a fully self-sufficient fighting force consisting of 1st, 2nd, 3rd Infantry Battalions, the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion, the 232nd Engineering Company, an Anti-Tank Company, a Cannon Company, and non-combat support. They began training in Camp Shelby, Mississippi.

By September 26, 1943, the 100th Infantry Battalion entered combat in Italy where they led the advance on Monte Milleto. The 100th Battalion was attached to the 34th Infantry Division where the 100th facing heavy resistance captured their first objective the capture of Benevento, an important rail center and road intersection. The men of the 100th Battalion advanced 15 miles in 24 hours fighting both day and night against heavy enemy resistance.

From Wikipedia:

Arriving in the European Theatre, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, with its three infantry battalions, one artillery battalion and associated HQ and service companies, was attached to the 34th Infantry Division. On 11 June 1944, near Civitavecchia, Italy, the existing 100th Infantry Battalion, another all-Nisei fighting unit which had already been in combat since September 1943, was transferred from the 133rd Infantry Regiment to the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Because of its combat record, the 100th was allowed to keep their original designation, with the 442nd renaming its 1st Infantry Battalion as its 100th Infantry Battalion.

Thank you. Google images has screwed up again. Apologies to the 442nd!
No, thank you for all you do for this site and for drawing my attention to the 442nd! According to Wikipedia, they are the unit that rescued the famous "lost battalion" in Germany. They suffered 800 casualties saving 211 guardsmen.

You are welcome. I just happened to discover this investigating what 'Go for Broke' Day.

It is a great story for all Americans but Japanese Americans in particular. What an impressive unit! What a great story!

Makes me more ashamed than ever regarding what we did to so many Japanese-Americans sent to detaining camps during that war.

Yeah, some members of the unit were recruited straight out of the camps; most had family members in the camps while they were fighting. Nonetheless, it's a great story!

You have to respect the patriotism those people who were in camps showed being willing to fight for the country that did that to them and their families. I question if I would have handled things with the grace that they did.

Much respect to them (and their families too).
