WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument, Tule Lake UnitWorld War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument was established in 2008, in part to serve as a reminder of the grave injustices endured by Japanese Americans incarcerated at the Tule Lake Segregation Center. The Tule Lake Unit also preserves a portion of the tumultuous history of the United States from the 1930s through the end of the war, through the stories of Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees, Japanese Americans, and Prisoners of War who are part of the history of Camp Tulelake. The Tulelake Unit is a reminder to all Americans that the Constitution is no more than a piece of paper unless we are willing to defend its principles.
