Uncommon Courage: Patriotism and Civil Liberties

Televised nationally on PBS in May 2002
see below for schedule

Uncommon Courage is the story of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS)--Japanese American soldiers trained in the Japanese language and sent to the Pacific during World War II and the Occupation of Japan while their families on the West Coast were incarcerated in concentration camps, stripped of their civil rights.

This is the first time a program that focuses exclusively on the MIS has ever been on TV, and it's a little-known part of American history that will finally be brought to the American public.

Directed by gayle k. yamada
Narrated by Ken Kashiwahara
