Supervisors vote to ask for Japanese-American WWII stamp

LOS ANGELES COUNTY - To honor the sacrifice and patriotism of the Japanese-American soldiers who served in the United States Armed Forces during World War II, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Antonovich to send a five-signature letter to the United States Postmaster General in support of a Japanese-American World War II commemorative stamp.

"Despite President Franklin Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066, relegating their families, friends and colleagues to internment camps, more than 20,000 Japanese Americans served our country proudly during World War II," Antonovich said.
