One has to wonder what was going on in George Sakata's mind when he took this photograph. The soldiers had been through hell and back in WWII, with horrors behind and the unknown ahead. Yet the soldier just calmly gazes through the leaves into the sky.
Taken by George Sakata. George was a member of the infamous 100th Division 442nd Nisei Regimental Combat Team in WWII. This was the only Japanese American unit in WWII and was nicknamed the "Go For Broke" unit. The 442nd had a casualty rate of 93% and was awarded 21 Medal of Honors.
