This video, 2007 Manzanar Pilgrimage – Janice Trubitt, was produced by the Manzanar Committee. It features the remarks of Janice Trubitt, niece of PFC Sadao S. Munemori, who volunteered for miitary service directly from Manzanar and served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II. He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his courage after he single-handedly knocked out two machine guns and dove on a grenade, smothering its blast—sacrificing his own life to save two comrades near Seravezza, Italy on April 5, 1945.
Trubitt made her remarks during the 38th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage, April 28, 2007.
