Abstract:

As members of Hawaii's National Guard, they had stood watch on that terrible night of Pearl Harbor, ready to kill or be killed, to protect Hawaii's mountains and valleys, its military installations and its miles of shoreline against an unexpected invasion. They were a microcosm of Hawaii: school teachers, factory workers, manufacturing officials, mechanics, agriculturists, salesmen, civil engineers, workers from sugar and pineapple plantations and from dozens of other Island occupations. And 95 percent of them were children of immigrants. Unlike most American troops which fought on foreign soil, they had seen bombs fall on their homeland, threatening their families; and this had awakened in them the desperate need to fight against prejudice to protect the liberties which they had been taught belonged to all Americans. That Original 100th Infantry Battalion was to become a legendary battalion of legendary men-like those who fought for freedom and justice in America's earlier wars. It was the first military unit which ever faced the challenge of proving, on a battlefield, loyalty to the United States. They had taken as their motto, "Remember Pearl Harbor." No matter where they were to go, they would never forget their beloved Islands.
