He was once found surrounded by more than 800 Japanese, some of the still armed, but they were his prisoners, he had captured all of the in just one day. To get them to give in he would approach the caves and hiding place where the Japanese hid and bid them to surrender. He would tell them they were surrounded and that if they came out peacefully they would not arm them. He also promise them dignity and to get them back to Japan when the war was over. He didn 't enjoy killing, and he thought that his deeds could save thousands of lives, and he did save 1500 lives.
8 Bullets Thomas A. Baker was born and raised in Troy, New York before joining the 105th Infantry Regiment and kicked serious ass in the Battle of Saipan against the Japanese in World War ll. Being awarded the Medal of Honor, this man 's career was like an anthology of heroic and daring stories stacked on top of each other. During the Battle of Saipan he went ahead of his company alone with a bazooka in hand and decided to take on a Japanese encampment. His friends probably thought he was a dead man but amazingly, he not only survived but also came back with a demolished enemy emplacement behind him. This allowed his company to continue the assault where he again, facing all odds charged 2 strong holds against a dozen men and eventually, killed them all as well.
In the beginning of the war, the US marines sent about 70,000 soldiers to a island called Iwo Jima. The Marines didn 't know that they will be going up against Japanese soldiers that hid in small bunkers. When the marines were at Iwo Jima, many deaths occurred. Marines had trouble figuring out where enemy fire was being shot from. Eventually, marines figured out that out about the bunkers and took out every enemy that was in them till it was over.
The Executive Order 9066 is where the order for the internment camps originated from. It shows how the American government addressed the Japanese-Americans living in the United States. At first everyone including the President defended the Japanese living in the United States until the Niihau incident where two Hawaiian born with Japanese ethnics helped and aided a downed pilot that assisted in the attacks of Pearl Harbor. After that the fear of Espionage became a huge concern and the racially motivated crimes and discrimination against the Japanese-American’s, is why the Executive Order 9006 was signed and enforced. The order forced 120,000 Japanese-Americans with most of them being American citizens to leave their homes, businesses and American constitutional rights behind and spend the war years behind barbed wire (By, 1988).
In the war, Mexican Americans soldiers were segregated just like the African Americans. Even though they were serving just like any other soldier, they were still disrespected. It was estimated that anywhere from 13.9 percent to 18.6 percent of Mexican Americans joined the military during World War II. One example of segregation of soldiers during the war, is segregated bathrooms. A private first class in the Army Air Corps, Tabares, explains an incident he encountered at a train station, “...
Which makes sence because he specializes in explosives detonation. The job of the frog men was to detonate the obstacles on Omaha beach (one of the 5 destinations where D-Day was to take place) before the rest of the army arrived for the invasion (Bobby Williams). Unfortunately there was a 52% fatality rate for the frog men on
Something that is interesting is, when Vietnamese people came to the U.S to become citizens they were determined to learn some even made it to the top of the class. There also something upsetting things from the effect of the vietnam war. One is Most homeless people over 50 are Vietnam veterans because they couldn 't bring their mind back after experiencing what they saw and what they did.To follow up on that Mr.Horn had a friend who was in Vietnam with him, he 's also a very talented runner who participated in the boston marathon.

Racetracks and fairgrounds were used while they waited to be transported to their assigned internment camps. Throughout the war, interned Japanese Americans protested against their treatment and insisted that they be recognized as loyal Americans. Many sought to demonstrate their loyalty by trying to enlist in the armed forces. Although early in the war Japanese Americans were barred from military service, by 1943 the army had begun actively recruiting to join new all-Japanese American. These men however were usually put in the first lines of war and were usually killed
In the Munson Report, the author writes, “In each Naval District there are about 250 to 300 suspects under surveillance. It is easy to get on the suspect list.” It was unfair to put 100,000 Japanese Americans into prison camps when there was on 300 actual suspects because, Not all Japanese people are like that. A Lot of Japanese people were just regular people and they don’t need to be treated like that. In the Crisis, it states that, “Color seems to be the only possible reason why thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry are in concentration camps.” This shows that Americans were racist against Japanese. Everyone should be equal even if there skin color are different.
We additionally see the development of an unmistakable, however little, dark white collar class in America after the war. Local Americans - Native people groups enrolled and were drafted in more prominent extent than different populaces, and served decently in all branches of the military. Most well known would be the Navajo Code Talkers, who confounded Japanese insight for the whole war, yet there were a great many other people who go unheralded and unmentioned, even in the cutting edge. Lamentably for Natives in America around then, little was done to enhance life on the reservations, and neediness and social disengagement was still
If those japanese were to be sent to the Internment camps, then US economy would take a hit in profits which the US desperately needed for World War II. The order has also allowed local military commanders to designate "military areas" as "exclusion zones". There were a total of Ten internment camps that were established in California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas, Oregon, and Washington. These internment camps eventually held all 120,000 Japanese/Japanese-Americans where many of the camps were filled overcapacity, as the government wanted to hold the Japanese to keep a 24 hour survalence on the
Non-Jewish Deaths in World War II All though many people believe that the Jewish were just about the only victims in the Holocaust, they don’t realize that all the victims as a whole, almost triple the Jewish amount of deaths. This is important because for those who lost their lives should never be forgotten. Many non-Jewish deaths took place in World War II because of their homeland, purely difference of race, bombings on Japan, and because they’re soldiers. Most victims lives were taken in Europe and West Asia. Many more religions, races, nations, and politically positioned people died in the World War II, who weren’t Jewish.
It can be traced back to World War II and the housing market. Black Soldiers were drafted into the army to fight against the Vietnamese, but were seen as inferior, so the military created segregated units (Werner 2015). Once the war was over, all soldiers were promised a G.I Bill, which gave them low mortgage loans and interest rates when buying homes. Unfortunately, the bill only allowed them to rent out housing in the inner city, which was known for overcrowding of minorities. The crime rate was high and the education system was segregated and
Some Japanese-Americans died in the camps, because of lack of medical care, and food shorted.” “The soldiers shot them if they did not follow the rules or orders the camp had.” “As it states on www.ushistory.org “In 1944, two and a half years after signing executive order 9066, Fourth-term President Franklin D. Roosevelt resigned the order, the last internment camp was closed by the end of 1945.” “In 1988 the congress paid each survivor of the camps twenty thousand dollars.” “It is estimated that seventy three million dollars people are still getting their money for the violation of their freedom.” “At the end, President Ronald Reagan signed a paper that provided an apology to the Japanese for putting them in the Internment
