Next once the government decided they might work with those young males in the army, a segregated device was started. Many Japanese American young males served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team/100th Battalion. Others, nonetheless, served in various other American military units. Those younger people faced racism from the fellow army personnel of theirs even while they served the country of theirs.
