Description

The 442nd Infantry Regiment is the most decorated unit in the history of American warfare. It was also composed almost entirely of second-generation American soldiers of Japanese ancestry who fought in World War 2. Most Japanese Americans who fought in the war were Nisei (second generation), born in the United States to immigrant parents. Beginning in 1944, the regiment fought primarily in Europe during World War 2, in particular Italy, southern France, and Germany.

With the considerable success the unit had, a heavy price came with it. The 4,000 men who initially came in April 1943 had to be replaced nearly 2.5 times. In total about 14,000 men served, earning 9,486 purple hearts. The unit was awarded 8 Presidential Unit Citations and 21 of its members were awarded Medals of Honor.

These conversion packs are intended to be used with our WW2 U.S. Army minifigures in order to add some variation to your scenes. Simply switch the arms and head and you can have an entirely new minifigure!

Minifigure is for diplay purposes only. Pack contains one pair of custom printed arms and one custom printed head.
