Your donations are greatly appreciated. This is the formally proposed rehabilitation and augmentation of the Bruyères monument for the 100th/442nd liberation of the city. The additional element is a locally sourced stone carved with the Go For Broke insignia that has come to be representative of the valor and sacrifice of the 100th/442nd during WWII. This was designed and rendered by architect David Onodera of Sacramento, CA. Again, thank you for your generosity with this project.

In 1947, the grateful but still ravaged City of Bruyères France built near Hill 555 a simple stone monument in honor of the Americans of Japanese descent who in October 1944 liberated their city from the German invaders. This historically important monument is now showing the effects of its age, exposure to the weather and occasional vandalism. It is this monument that interested parties seek to renew in the memory of all those who sacrificed in this heroic effort.In addition to the restoration of the existing monument, these same interested parties also seek to augment the current site with an additional memorial element using locally quarried native stone. A licensed architect has prepared a proposed design based on the shoulder patch of the 100/442nd RCT. While the final design and placement remain subject to change, the Mayor and City Council have approved the project and expect its completion by October 2017. #tulelake #manzanar #nisei #niseiveterans #japaneseamerican #japaneseamericansoldiers #veterans #history #militaryhistory #hill555project
