LOS ANGELES—The Go For Broke Spirit: Legacy in Portraits is a photographic and video exhibit opening at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) November 3 to 24, 2019. The opening reception will be on November 3, with a tribute opportunity for families to honor veterans, and a book signing with Shane Sato and veterans in attendance.

The exhibit will also feature interviews of Japanese American veterans of the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars in a short video documentary co-created by Robert Horsting and Shane Sato.
The event will also include tours of Memorial Court to increase awareness of the history and legacy of the heroic contributions of Japanese Americans in all wars.
