".....Being a history Buff, I know that during World War II, the most decorated unit in the US Army was a unit made up of Japanese Americans. .......I found April 5-6, 1945: 442and Regimental Combat Team makes a surprise attack on Nazi mountainside positions in Italy, breaking through the Nazi Gothic Line in one day. That may be related to the Go for Broke Day." Thanks.,Alan J. Rod, Instructor, USAF Public Affairs Center of Excellence
