During World War II, George Sakata was a member of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Like the rest of his fellow soldiers in the 442nd, Sakata was a second-generation American of Japanese descent, or Nisei. In addition to being a courageous soldier, Sakata was a skilled photographer, and he took his camera with him when the 442nd was sent to Europe. He took snapshots around Italy, documenting daily life as he went front town to town. He also photographed his fellow Nisei, providing a rare and invaluable window into the world of a soldier.
George's story is just as fascinating as his photographs, so visit our blog to learn even more about him.
