442nd Japanese American Soldiers from Dragon - 1/6 GI Joe Style

Wow - it's been a long time since I did anything with my old stash of 12 inch GI Joes. In this case, as I was keeping track of the Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter campaign, the newest stretch goal was a Japanese American soldier. 

It reminded me of a set of soldiers from Dragon I bought in the 2000s. There were two soldiers from the 442nd (Tak and Yoshi) and one soldier from the 100th Battalion (Nagashima). Nagashima came with a great mortar set.

The 442nd is a storied battalion, earning one of the highest count of Medals of Honor during WWII as these Japanese American soldiers fought in Europe.
