“Honor and Sacrifice” is the story of one man’s journey from early hardship to a concentration camp and ultimately to the stature of authentic American hero, based on his nearly unbelievable contribution as a member of Merrill’s Marauders. Roy was a man of extraordinary strength, stamina, wit, and courage, as this story demonstrates. But in most respects he was also a typical member of the Japanese American community he grew up in, showing through his life and military service the qualities of determination, loyalty, and acceptance of sacrifice that define the honorable place in US history occupied by the Japanese Americans of the 20th century.
