Unveiling of plaque Saturday
January 29, 2020
Saturday will be a special day in Three Forks with the unveiling of the bronzed memorial plaque to honor men and women of Japanese ancestry who served and fought for America in WWII.
The special ceremony is scheduled for February 1 at 10 a.m. at Veteran's Park in Three Forks.
The memorial was originally erected by the late Navy Veteran Bud Lilly in 2011 and tells the story of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. While a memorial for all the Japanese Americans who served in World War II, it honors local Veterans George Oiye, Yokichi Itoh, John Satake, Frank Satake, King Satake and Eileen Satake...
