In his remarks after being re-elected, Mr. Mizusawa noted he was satisfied with the progress in each of the three goals, however, he called for further expansion of membership in the national constituency; the continued need to educate both national and international audiences on veterans contributions to protect American freedom and democracy through an improved newsletter, press releases, speakers and the website; and to work with other non Japanese American veteran organizations and other VSOs to push the cause of veterans. Mr. Mizusawa said that many Japanese American and other veterans organizations are looking at JAVA for ideas and leadership and we must commit to that end our resources and know-how in an apolitical manner. He asked the members for suggestions as to the kind of programs they wanted and at the same time asked them to step forward to assist JAVA. He said that all this will require funds and we need to generate a dynamic fund raising campaign.

President Bert Mizusawa (incumbent)
term. L-R: Bert Mizusawa, President; Dave Buto, Secretary; Thomas V. Presently a Colonel serving in the Army Reserve, Mr. Mizusawa's election two years ago marked the beginning of the transfer of leadership from the WW II generation as determined by the JAVA Executive Committee. At that time, JAVA embarked on a program to expand its membership outside of the Washington, D.C., area by emphasizing the infusion of post-WW II veterans, obtaining the recognition as a true "Veterans Service Organization" (VSO) by the Department of Veterans Affairs to advance the interests of Japanese American veterans, and expanding the visibility of Japanese American veterans both nationally and internationally. In his remarks after being re-elected, Mr. Mizusawa noted he was satisfied with the progress in each of the three goals, however, he called for further expansion of membership in the national constituency; the continued need to educate both national and international audiences on veterans' contributions to protect American freedom and democracy through an improved newsletter, press releases, speakers and the website; and to work with other non Japanese American veteran organizations and other VSOs to push the cause of veterans.
