Going for broke for a stamp
By Nick Green Staff Writer
Article Launched: 01/17/2008 11:30:22 PM PST


A bid by Torrance groups to honor Japanese-American World War II veterans with a postage stamp is one step closer to reality.

An Assembly Joint Resolution, authored by Chinese-

American Assemblyman Mike Eng, D-Monterey Park, was unanimously endorsed by a key committee Wednesday.

The resolution urges the Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee of the U.S. Postal Service to approve a commemorative postage stamp honoring the 30,000 nisei - second-generation Japanese-Americans - who fought against their parents' homeland.

1. Mahalo YM,
I just saw this...thanks! It would be cool to honor the 442nd vets. I so wish that they supported Ehren Watada. With all they went through, you would have thought. But it's good to hear the stamp may happen anyway.
Aloha sister.
