My name is Glen Gondo, I live in Houston, Texas. My Parents, Japanese Americans, were interned during World War II. My Uncle was a volunteer fighting for the Americans in the 442nd Japanese American Regimental Combat team that was killed during the Rescue of the Texas Lost Battalion.
My Aunt while assembled at the Santa Anita horse track died from giving birth due to unsanitary conditions and lack of proper medical attention.
We endorse the The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission The change to the TEK recommendation is as follows:
The Texas 36th Infantry Division liberated Dachau sub-camps and the Texas 90th Infantry Division liberated Flossenbürg concentration camp, finding about 1,500 prisoners who had not been evacuated on death marches
