The 100th Infantry Battalion veterans were honored to receive congratulatory commendations and letters from President Joe Biden, Hawaii’s Governor David Ige, Congressional delegates Senator Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono, Representatives Ed Case and Kai Kahele. In addition, Hawaii State Senate and House of Representatives provided certificates. The Honorary Italian Consul also recognized the accomplishments of the men of the 100th.
(Note: President Biden and Governor Ige personally addressed their letters to the 12 known living veterans. The letter included here is addressed to Edward Ikuma, the oldest and original 100th veteran; all veterans received similar letters addressed to them.)
