The “Go for Broke” Crowd Gets C-17 Honor:

The famed Japanese American 442nd Regimental Combat Team that fought in the World War II European Theater now has a new C-17 airlifter carrying its slogan “Go for Broke.” At a ceremony Thursday at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, the seventh of eight C-17s to be assigned to the Pacific Air Forces flew in with the name The Spirit of “Go for Broke” emblazoned on its fuselage. A number of the 442nd men were on hand for the ceremony. Air Force officials say their unit became the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in US military history.
