About

The Japanese American Military History Collective (JAMHC) is a cooperative partnership of the Japanese American Service Committee, Military Intelligence Service Veterans Club of Hawaii, Nisei Veterans Memorial Center, Go For Broke National Education Center and other partners.  Together we are improving access to cultural heritage organizations’ historical content about Japanese American World War II veteran legacy including oral histories, documents, and photographs. 

Mission

The central purpose of the JAMHC is to assemble, digitize, and make web-accessible historical documents and oral histories of the Japanese American military experience in World War II.
