We are excited to share that the Twin Cities JACL has received partial funding from the Japanese American Community Foundation to reinstitute the annual Japanese American Veterans Memorial Service. The last service was held in May 2010 and was previously organized by the Japanese American Veterans of Minnesota. This event holds significant historical and cultural importance as it pays tribute to the local Japanese American veterans and others connected with the Minnesota Japanese American community.

The hour-long program is scheduled on Thursday, May 16, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. (CST) and will include inspiring speakers and an Honor Roll call to recognize and commemorate the sacrifices made by our Japanese American veterans. Following the program, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a meaningful activity by helping to decorate the gravesites of honored veterans at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

This event not only honors the brave men and women who served our country but also serves as a unifying and community-building occasion for all who attend. We believe that fostering a sense of unity and gratitude within our community is crucial, and your support can help make this event even more impactful.

We are reaching out to individuals and organizations that share our commitment to preserving the legacy of Japanese American veterans and promoting cultural understanding. Your generous donation will contribute directly to the success of this event and help us continue to strengthen the bonds within our community.
