JASH Weekly Update 7/16
Dear Members and Friends of JASH: We are very pleased and honored to feature JASH lifetime member and author Michael Malaghan as he discusses his new book release A Question of Loyalty which dramatizes the Nisei struggle to prove their loyalty to a doubtful country wary of their presence. The novel features the early heroic days of the 100th/442nd and life in the concentration camps. Mr. Malaghan spent a lifetime in the corporate world on four continents, but knew in his heart that he was a writer. Married to a Tochigi “new Issei” and living in Hawaii, he knew the story of the Nisei Territorial Guard, who were stripped of their uniforms weeks after Pearl Harbor only to enlist a year later when allowed, was the stuff of a good story.
