The most decorated combat unit in the history of the United States of America
Did you know that the 442nd Infantry Regiment is the most decorated combat unit in the history of the United States Army? But what’s so curious about that?
Well, the 442º Infantry Regiment was, worth the redundancy, an infantry regiment made up of Americans of Japanese descent, known as Nisei.
The value of this unit was legendary in European theater and added no more and no less than the incomparable number of 18,143 decorations, most achieved in the so-called “Way to Rome” and the reconquest of France.
