An interview with 100th daughter, Joan Naguwa, of HUGS on the status of nom-profits during the pandemic. Joan is the daughter of Edward Ikuma of Headquarters Company.

A few weeks back, Joan Naguwa, Executive Director of HUGS, was interviewed by Nolan Hong for his video series on the nonprofit experience during the pandemic. Joan talked about how they serve Hawaii’s families as they care for a seriously ill child, and how things have changed for them since the coronavirus.

We want to share this interview here to highlight nonprofit leaders like Joan, who are continuing to work hard at pivoting with their teams to meet the needs of those they exist to support.

Anderson Cooper 360

Starting soon

“It’s hard to tell if it’s because of racism or if it’s just the pandemic, but we are still down 50%.” When the coronavirus pandemic hit, Cam Voung’s Chinese restaurant, Canton House, not only saw a dramatic drop in business, but it was also the target of vandals who broke his windows. Now Asian Americans are still facing the economic consequences of Covid-19 along with the racism and xenophobia that has spread with the virus. The Asian American unemployment rate, once the lowest, is now one of the highest. CNN goes to Atlanta, where Asian American businesses are still struggling eight months into the coronavirus pandemic.

More about the Go For Broke stamp

Breaking GOOD News! Finally, the incredible contributions of Japanese American Soldiers of WWII are being recognized on a US stamp. This was NO small feat. It was a fight that began in 2005...15 years in the making! Let that sink in. For 15 years, dedicated people like Fusa Takahashi, Aiko O. King, the late Chiz Ohira and Wayne Osako from the Stamp our Story movement refused to give up on fighting for something that shouldn't have required such a fight. But, like the 100th/442, they never gave up. The stamp may be small, but what it represents is HUGE. Spread the good news!

I did not know that actor Don Knotts was a highly decorated World War II veteran

As Deputy Barney Fife, he was so inept he had to carry his bullet in his pocket but Don Knotts was a veteran of the Second World War who was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, Philippine Liberation Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal (with 4 bronze service stars), Army Good Conduct Medal, Marksman Badge (with Carbine Bar) and Honorable Service Lapel Pin. He was born on this day in 1924.

I didn’t know that the iconic photo was actually the second flag!

🇺🇲 The First Flag of Iwo Jima 🇺🇲

Charles W. "Chuck" Lindberg was a United States Marine Corps corporal who fought in three island campaigns during World War II. During the Battle of Iwo Jima, he was a member of the patrol that captured the top of Mount Suribachi where he helped raise the first U.S. flag on the island on February 23, 1945.

The first flag flown over the southern end of Iwo Jima was regarded to be too small to be seen by the thousands of Marines fighting on the other side of the mountain where the Japanese airfields and most of their troops were located, so it was replaced the same day with a larger flag. Although there were photographs taken of the first flag flying on Mount Suribachi and some which include Lindberg, there is no photograph of Marines raising the first flag. The second flag-raising was photographed by Associated Press combat photographer Joe Rosenthal and became famous after copies of his photograph appeared in the newspapers two days later. Lindberg spent decades trying to bring awareness of the first flag raising and his participation in it.

Thank you to all of our veterans and to those that serve now. 🇺🇸
Here’s a few pages out of my grandparents album that documented some of his travels during his service in the war. Just looked up my grandpa’s (Takeo Ohara) decorations from WWII out of curiosity. He never really talked about his days in service during the war, and was pretty quiet in general. He was assigned to the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, 100th Battalion, Company D and held the rank of Private First Class. He received the Bronze Star Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge, oak leaf cluster, and the Combat Infantry Badge. According to my dad and what he recalls, my grandfather was a messenger between camps and had come under sniper fire at least once, but I can’t confirm it. If anyone recognizes a relative in the photos, I’d be happy to try and scan in the photos at a higher resolution in the future for you.
Good Evening- I am writing with an odd request and I will add a little backstory. I am asking if you can send my father carpenters pencils with your names, cities and state hand written onto the blank side of the pencil. These can be acquired for $0.18 at Home Depot, and free at most lumber yards. Backstory: First, my father is a proud veteran who served in the Marines. He has also been a volunteer firefighter and first responder for the last 12 years in Wishram Washington. I am asking that his brother's and sisters help lift his spirits during a difficult time. He has glioblastoma which is an incurable brain cancer. He has had brain surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. At this time he is taking part in clinical trials to help extend his life. He woodworks as a hobby. He is planning to build a wooden tool cabinet and would like the front doors to be made showing these pencils. A goal of his is to have 108 of them total to complete his project from different people, cities and states. He is finding great joy in receiving these in the mail and anything that brings him joy is very appreciated at this time. If you could share this information with others it will be very helpful. Charles Hargrove 108 Nelson Ave Kelso, WA 98626 Thank You, Amber Lennox
