As many know, Japanese Americans across the USA will participate this month in their local Day of Remembrance commemorations. Held on or around February 19, the DOR commemorates the day that then president Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which allowed the identification, arrest, and ongoing incarceration of any and all persons alleged to be inimical to national security.
February 19 marks the 74th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066
