The History Museum of Hood River County hosts a visiting exhibit through Feb. 26, “What if Heroes Were Not Welcome Home?” It comes courtesy of Oregon Historical Society. During World War II, Japanese Americans born and raised in Hood River, known as Nisei, served heroically with the United States Armed Forces in the South Pacific and in Europe. At the same time, many of their family members were unjustly incarcerated in concentration camps on American soil. The museum’s “Heroes Unheralded” reception on Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. will be a thank-you celebration to remember the experiences of Japanese American citizens in World War II.
