The Japanese American GIs Who Fought for the United States in World War II
Author: Bill Yenne
Despite the fact that they and their families had been forced into internment camps, thousands of the American sons of Japanese immigrants responded by volunteering to serve in the United States armed forces during World War II. As military historian Bill Yenne writes, "It was their country, and they wanted to serve, just like anyone else their age. These young Japanese Americans thought of themselves as Americans, and they wanted to prove it." Most of these young Japanese Americans served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and its component 100th Infantry Battalion. For its size and length of service, the 442nd was the most decorated in the history of the US Army. The Japanese American GIs of the 442nd eventually earned 21 Medals of Honor and 9,486 Purple Hearts, while their outfit was awarded eight Presidential Unit Citations. Rising Sons brings to light the stories of these young men who faced down discrimination to serve their country. Some of these sons of Japanese immigrants came from Hawaii, where they had witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor firsthand, and responded like most Americans by signing up to serve. Most of the Japanese-Americans served in Italy and France, in the terrible and difficult battles at Anzio and Cassino, in the Vosges Mountains and on the Gothic Line. Detached from the regiment for service in southern Germany, the 442nd's artillery battalion had the ironic distinction of being one of the American units involved in the liberation of Dachau. Japanese-Americans also proved themselves invaluable in the Pacific as well, serving in the Military Intelligence Service or in the infamous special-ops commando team known as Merrill's Marauders. Weaving together impeccable research with vivid firsthand accounts from surviving veterans, Yenne recounts the incredible stories of the Japanese-American soldiers who fought so bravely in World War II, men who were willing to lay down their lives for a country they were uncertain would ever accept them again. Their courageous actions proved that they, too, were true members of America's Greatest Generation.

Three-hundred years after the fall of Loda Durak, a new evil has risen to test the might and authority of Gruff. A warlock empowered by shadow and darkness has come to usher in a new era on Atoria. Through dark magic, demonic soldiers, and the lost technology of an ancient civilization, Lord Shima forces change and terror on Gruff's planet. With the powerful aid of his three sons and the awesome might of a life-altering stranger, Gruff must once again stand against a fearsome adversary. As Gruff races against time and space to save his world, he must also hold together his band of young and impulsive soldiers who are much too eager to prove their worth. Armed with razor-sharp steel, unimaginable armor, and mind-blowing strength, Gruff and his impetuous men slay demons and beasts on their path to Lord Shima's cancerous kingdom of Atlantis.

In 2795, the citizens of Earth stand at the edge of a hopeful crossroad. For the first time in centuries, humanity appears to be entering a new golden age of peace, progress and technological rebirth. But the new Renaissance comes at a tremendous cost; it took a lingering period of global strife, seas of spilled blood and acts of senseless decimation to wedge the splintered race together. Two hundred years prior, history’s deadliest war came to a crashing halt after hydrogen mining operations prematurely forced the sun into its final state. The world’s five major powers disarmed and bonded in a unified attempt to forge a superstructure that would allow future generations to eventually leave Earth and survive the wrath of the growing star. A young man named Vikaré Raymond, scarred at birth by a life-saving titanium shunt inserted deep in his brain, uses his intelligence to support the superstructure project. Struggling with a damaged limbic system that strips him of emotions, Vikaré takes solace in throwing himself into his analytical work. Despite a strained relationship with his parents and aunt, who are members of a terroristic underground cult hell-bent on delivering humanity to the sun as payment for their ancestors’ sins, Vikaré manages to find a sort of mundane tranquility in his stark surroundings. When an extraterrestrial vessel unexpectedly lands in the Panama Canal to investigate the celestial turbulence two centuries prior, he learns that the shrapnel wedged deep in his brain is the key to deciphering the adaptive encryption of the beings’ language. As the only human capable of interpreting their vocalizations, Vikaré feels the weight of mankind’s future bearing down on his already damaged mind. The turn of events forces him to make a life-altering choice: either rise to his place as his parents’ son, or eschew his blood-bound duties to fight the growing threat from the dying sun. Adding further fuel to the chaos, Vikaré must also counter the deadly whims of the pervasive shadow cult, whose leaders interpret the recent chain of events as the imminent prophetic arrival of their new leader: a maniacal celestial goddess who will soon be reborn in a nearly unstoppable digital form. Vikaré’s decisions trap the entire Raymond clan in a global web of twisting motivations, shifting alliances, revelations of long-held grudges and bold power plays to survive and thrive in their toxic, doomed world. Will Vikaré abandon his parents–and the shadowy enviro-terrorism organization they support–to beseech the aliens to help spare humanity? Can the residents of Earth rally long enough to finish the superstructure? Which is ultimately more powerful: destruction, or conservation? Combining family drama and a tale of introspective self-discovery with neurological, linguistic, religious and space themes, Rising Son is a complex fictional story that weaves many journeys and paths together to create an engrossing tale. Its edgy, gritty perspective and occasionally mature subject matter appeals to adult and very late-teen readers alike. The story is inspired by epic fantasies and space operas but forgoes conventional plot devices, creating a fresh and unexpected read that requires readers to think about their own place in the wide, dark universe.
So many times in our own homes and communities -at-Large, the young female child is nurtured, raised up properly with all the best of character qualities invested into them. Now, on the other hand too often the young male is left to go at it all alone, on his own. This young male (sons), are charged to become the leaders in home, and the market place in the not-too-distant future. This book, RISING SONS was birthed and born from a similar experience in my own life. Had it not been for God using my grandma Jay to hold me accountable and at the same time provide for me in all areas of life, I don't think I would have survived. Yes, there were many times I just wanted to run away from home, school, plantation and yes God. But thank God for a strong grandma who wouldn't let me do what I felt. I guess we all have had our prodigal experiences at one time or the other. After much prayer and soul searching, this book was birthed in my spirit and then manifested in my mind and body. Out of the plantation, cotton field and fighting mosquitoes, flies and knats came a little boy out of wedlock not knowing what to do or which way to go; Nay, Crock Martin, Nate, names given to me by family and close friends. Some other names, I had to learn to deal with on plantation were: boy, nigger, blacky, or that boy or just him-names my grandma and mama taught me how to handle. Even though the Delta Plantation had its dark sides and many pains, and suffering we, sharecroppers endured, yet there were some Whites / Caucasins who were loving, caring and fair with Black sharecroppers. These are the people who came along side of us and help to keep us mentally and spiritually sane. I have learned and try hard to implement into my life: Three-fold purpose of man: (1) Be fruitful- (giving birth) (2) Multiply- (raising productivity), (3) Replenish- (leaving a deposit). Ultimate lesson I have taken from writing this book is: (a) Don't stop working for change, when things start getting better. (b.) It is not about me, but the next generation, the unborn, but about building an infrastructure in my home that will serve as a kingdom model. This is a historical and biographical account of challenges and triumphs I experienced as a child in rural Mississippi-the delta region of Leflore County. Little did I know that God was allowing me to experience the many challenges of growing up in a society where racism, alcoholism, social alienation, educational segregation, and economical were the "norms." This is just the way things were and as a young black boy born out-of-wedlock you did not ask questions. This is just the way it was.
