    Since my students are in the process of completing research papers on various topics relating to WWII (these are students engaging in advanced academic work, in their second language, after most having been in this country for less than two years - very impressive to see), I have been giving thought to various interesting and highly important issues relating to the war.

    For example:

    All I get is a blank space after 'example', so it must be some sort of illiterate Boob Tube crap or other. Never mind. I don't use my PC for watching badly produced home-made TV shows.

    Methinks the speaker might be a tad misled about all those various factions volunteering for service Unkotare.

    IIRC, they were offered a choice

    The story of the 442 is stirring. Daniel Inouye was a member. Theirs is a story worth telling and yet it is mostly forgotten...

    You’re making no sense. Most of the victims of fdr’s concentration camps were US citizens. They didn’t volunteer to become Americans, they volunteered BECAUSE they were Americans, and despite the racist anti-Americanism of that no-good, POS fdr.

    Military naturalization has existed for quite some time in our history Unkotare

    You would do well to investigate this juxtaposed to detainment
