The U.S. Army plans to open the National Museum of the United States Army — NMUSA — near Washington, D.C., in 2019 that will include recognition of World War II AJA soldiers of the Military Intelligence Service, 100th Infantry Battalion and 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

Work on the three-story, 185,000-square-foot facility is underway on 83 acres at Fort Belvoir in northern Virginia, located about 20 minutes by car from the nation’s capital. See

About 70 people attended, including World War II MIS veterans Herbert Yanamura and Ted Tsukiyama, both of whom initially volunteered for the 442nd RCT and were then transferred to the MIS.
