There’s a video on our website that reminded me that VMC was much involved in this project with my sister, Marla Hirokawa and in fact, underwrote the story ballet depicting the Nisei Veterans story in dance coming to Hawaii in 2003. We knew not how to do it; we just knew we “had to tell this story”. So, with little understanding what was required of me and my sister; we dove into it. The story ballet was taken to Leeward Community College Theater, Hilo UH Campus Theater, Kauai Community College Theater and the Maui Arts and Cultural Center during the summer of 2003.

We have been incredibly blessed by what happened then and how the community embraced us and this ballet and its Nisei story. My sister is reprising the ballet in New York this summer and bringing it back to remind us of how much we owe these brave men a huge debt of gratitude. Please support Marla in her efforts to make sure that this story does not continue to be told to the newer generation….
