History of National Go For Broke Day

The exact origin and the founder of National Go For Broke Day are still unknown. Go For Broke was the motto of the 442nd Regimental Combat, an Army team composed of Japanese Americans from Hawaii and the mainland of the United States. The unit fought during World War II. The motto is believed to have been adopted by gamblers in Hawaii, which meant that the players risk everything in one go to win big. April 5 is picked to be observed because, on this day, Sadao S. Munemori, the first medal of honor of the team, sacrificed his life in the enemy fire to save his men. This incident took place near Seravazza, Italy, in 1945. The Go For Broke Monument, located in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California, stands as a powerful tribute to the Japanese American soldiers.
