The bravery of Nisei veterans were commended on Sunday at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl more than 70 years after their service.

Speakers at the ceremony recognized the sacrifice of the World War II Japanese-American veterans who continue to inspire today's service members.

Last year, Nisei soldiers were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation's highest civilian honor.
