Monument Facts
The Go For Broke Monument stands as a powerful tribute to the Japanese American soldiers of World War II.

The black granite monument is engraved with the names of more than 16,000 Japanese American men and women who served during the war. It includes the Japanese American soldiers who served in these military units during World War II in the European, Pacific, and China-Burma-India theaters.
