On Nov. 11, the Veteran’s
Administration searched for “The
most impressive family with a military
record” in the United States. The family
of Tokuhisa Thomas Matsudaira
(3236 15th Ave. S., Seattle) has
been chosen as a candidate for
the event. An English paper has
introduced the family on a large
scale with pictures. Matsudaira’s
family is known as very large
in Nikkei society since they have
thirteen children, nine sons and
four daughters. It is extraordinary
that eight of them are or had been
in military service.
A son of Matsudaira, Vincent, will have a screening event of his new documentary “Kash The Legend and Legacy of Shiro Kashino” at NVC Memorial Hall at 2 pm on Dec. 10. More information can be seen on the calendar page. Vincent is an Air Force veteran too.
