The event coincided with the annual U.S.-Japan Rising Thunder training exercises at the Yakima Training Center, and included a tour of the Nisei Veterans Committee Memorial Hall in Seattle, a luncheon, special guests and speakers, and Okinawa taiko drumming. The event includes a special introduction of the Going for Honor, Going for Broke movie.
