What if you were a Nisei would you have served in the war?
Nisei means "second" in Japanese; the Nisei were the second generation, children born in America of Japanese parents.
America in 1942 was a land of somewhat irrational prejudice against people of Japanese origin, because of the "sneak attack" elements of the Japanese attacks on December 7 and 8, 1941, against Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and against American and British ships and bases around the Pacific rim. In Hawaii, there were few overt acts of prejudice against the Japanese residents, but in California, Japanese families were forced to leave their coastal homes and businesses and move to internment camps in the desert. Given this insult, it would have been natural for Americans of Japanese descent - the Nisei - to have refused military service. But over 10,000 volunteered to serve in the Army.
An entire unit, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, was recruited and sent to combat in Europe. The 42nd, nicknamed "Go for Broke!", was entirely made up of Japanese-Americans, and became the most highly decorated unit in WWII, earning 21 Congressional Medals of Honor.
The Nisei regiment was a unit that was comprised primarily of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The only one of these is the 442nd Regiment which served in the European theater.

The Nisei Battalions were fierce and had some of the most decorated units in WW2.

The Nisei were second generation Japanese Americans, born in the United States to Japanese parents. They were subject to pervasive discrimination and internment during World War II.
Most Japanese Americans who served during WW2 enlisted or were drafted into the US Army and served as soldiers in one of three all Nisei units: 100th Infantry Battalion 442nd Regimental Combat Team 522nd Field Artillery Battalion Some Japanese served in other branches, many as translators in communications units. Most if not all served quite honorably.
they were the japanese-american's who were in the war, and there families were back home in the internement camps.

Nisei were first generation Americans of Japanese descent .
For the majority of WW2, Japanese Americans served in Japanese American military units; such as the famed US Army 442nd Regimental Combat Team, in Europe. With the US at war with Japan, folks felt abit uneasy about having armed Japanese American soldiers side by side with them; loyalty was the issue.
No, nisei are the first generation of children born to Japanese immigrants to America. They are American born and therefore citizens. Their parents are isei, born in Japan and moved to America, where they had children who were the nisei. There had never been large numbers of Japanese immigrants in America. There was a quota of how many people from each country would be admitted to the US, and the quota for all Asian nations… Read More

how George Washinton served his country in war?
If you are asking about the 442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT) that was almost entirely Japanese-Americans (Nisei) during the Second World War, then...Yes, other American troops that served in the vicinity or with them during the war did give them the respect that they earned & deserved. They were highly commended & awarded (as a unit & individually), in fact the most decorated unit for size & length of service in the combat zones.
That would depend on the country that they came from or the unit they served in.

Yes, she was. Her Majesty was born in 1926 and during the war she served in the ATS where she trained as a motor mechanic and even to this day she can, apparently, sort out her engine problems if need be. As the heir to the throne she would never have served in front line units.
After I enlisted in the Navy in 1974, I served with several Navy Seabees who had fought in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Service members who retired after 30 years during that time would have served in all three wars.
In general, that would be a decision that would be made by Her Majesty's government. They would have to decide that the goals and objectives of their nation would be better served to withdraw. In specific, that would be a decision that would be made by each individual soldier. He/she would have to decide that the goals and objectives they have for themselves are better served by deserting.
