The NVC Foundation was created in 2001 by the wives, sons, daughters, and grandchildren of the NVC veterans to carry on the Nisei solders’ legacy through education and preservation programs.
With more flexible membership rules, this 501 c 3 non-profit organization has and will be able to educate future generations about the legacy and traditions of the Japanese American soldier. For example, the NVC Foundation speakers’ bureau program has provided veteran and former WWII internee speakers to local school classroom and civic organizations. The monthly Speaker Series has provided personal and family accounts of the Nisei and Japanese American experience. The Memorial Wall, which was dedicated in 2008, is a tribute to Japanese Americans who were interned during World War II or who have served in the military.
Membership is open to all and is not restricted to Veterans.
