During World War II, American Legion Post 22 removed names of 16 Nisei (Japanese American) servicemen from a public honor roll, prompting national outcry. Almost 80 years later, Post 22 helped dedicate Highway 35 in honor of Oregon Nisei veterans and then publically apologized on Veterans Day.

Linda Tamura highlights Hood River's hidden history as well as recent events brining the community together. The program will include conversations with Oregon Nisei Veterans Highway collaborators Eric Ballinger and Dick Tobiason (Bend Heroes Foundation) and 13-year-old Mia Ballinger, all Bend residents.

Free parking. No RSVP required. Hosted by the Deschutes Historical Museum.
