Changing Gallery Features New Exhibit : "America's Secret Weapon: Japanese Americans in the Military Intelligence Service"

The exhibit reveals the little-known story of thousands of Americans of Japanese ancestry who waged war against their parents' homeland in World War II as members of the U.S. Army's Military Intelligence Service. These "Nisei" second generation Japanese Americans used their knowledge of the enemy's language and culture to give America a priceless edge that shortened the war and saved countless lives.

Open to the Public.

Visit the U.S. Army Museum Hawaii

Here at the U.S. Army Museum Hawaii the biggest artifact is the building itself. The museum is housed in Battery Randolph a massive reinforced concrete emplacement with roofs as much as 12 feet thick. The battery was built around 1911 for two 14 inch guns that could fire projectiles as far as 14 miles. It was part of a coastal defense system that was to protect Honolulu Harbor from invasion. Watch the video for more information.
