Congressional Gold Medal Exhibit, Bishop Museum

I had the opportunity to attend several of the panels presented at Bishop Museum during the month of March. The Congressional Gold Medal, which was awarded to the AJAs who fought during World War II, was on exhibit at Bishop Museum. Along with the exhibit, several panels were given each Saturday for four or five weeks. I’ll share some photos and videos soon but here are some photos of the exhibit itself.
