Bank honors Military Intelligence Service

Central Pacific Bank will debut a new display today focusing on the Military Intelligence Service of World War II, in observance of Veterans Day.

The new display is part of its "Honoring the Legacy" exhibition at its main branch at 220 S. King St. Branch hours are Monday to Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free; call 544-0500.

The Legacy exhibit honors the World War II veterans from the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Infantry Battalion (Separate), Military Intelligence Service and 1,399th Engineer Construction Battalion.

Last week the Congressional Gold Medal, one of the country's highest civilian honors, was awarded recognizing the service of more than 33,000 veterans, 13,000 of them from Hawaii, who fought in Europe and Asia during World War II.

The exhibit will include historic photographs and mementoes, a katana (sword), a captured Japanese flag and sash obtained by MIS veterans and supporters. It also will include personal items from the collection of the late Hono­lulu businessman Kazuo Yamane, an MIS linguist who scored a major intelligence coup during World War II.

I'm glad to see that Central Pacific Bank is doing an exhibit for the MIS of the 442 and 100 Battallion. I'm proud to say that my father was a translater for the MIS 442nd Regimental Combat Team during WW2. Thank you CPB. My family will definitely visit your exhibit.
