But the announcement of the Medal of Honor triggers both his post-traumatic stress disorder and feelings of guilt about his survival after seeing so many of his buddies die. His subsequent disappearance worries his family and friends, who are afraid he might kill himself. Colonel Kim (Sook-Tek Oh), his commanding officer visits one of his war buddies, Mits (Jim Ishida), and sets out to find George. Mits's son, Glenn (Ryun Yu), also a veteran of an unspecified war, is assigned to help the Colonel. The two men visit family and friends, before finding George in full uniform honoring his fallen comrades at the Go For Broke Memorial in downtown Los Angeles. But can they reach him?\n</p><p>Though Fukuoka is fictional, many other aspects of the film are based on real events, people or places. Some fifty years after the war, the army and navy reviewed the war records of Asian American soldiers to determine if any should be upgraded to receive the Medal of Honor. They eventually recommended twenty-two for upgrades, which were presented by President Bill Clinton in 2000. The Colonel is based on Colonel Young-Oak Kim, a decorated veteran who served with Japanese Americans despite being of Korean ancestry. The final scenes were shot at the actual Go For Broke monument, while George's shop's history is based on the actual Fugetsu-do shop in Los Angeles Little Tokyo and scenes of the shop were filmed there.\n</p><p><i>Forgotten Valor</i> was one of three films that writer/director Lane Nishikawa wrote and directed about World War II veterans—which include <i>Only the Brave</i> (2005) and <i>When We Were Warriors</i> (1999). It was supported by funding from the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/California_Civil_Liberties_Public_Education_Program\" title=\"California Civil Liberties Public Education Program\">California Civil Liberties Public Education Program</a> and a collaboration between Nishikawa and the Go For Broke Educational Foundation. It won the best short feature award at the 2001 Hawai'i International Film Festival.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Only_the_Brave_(film)\" title=\"Only the Brave (film)\">Only the Brave</a></i> (2006); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Journey_of_Honor_(film)\" title=\"Journey of Honor (film)\">Journey of Honor</a></i> (2001); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Honor_Bound:_A_Personal_Journey_(film)\" title=\"Honor Bound: A Personal Journey (film)\">Honor Bound: A Personal Journey</a></i> (1995)\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"\"><h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div></div></div>\n</div></div></div>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Palopoli, Steve. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://www.metroactive.com/papers/cruz/10.08.03/nishikawa-0341.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">Pride and Prejudice</a>\", <i>Metro Santa Cruz</i>, October 8-15, 2003.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.128 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.131 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 403/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2697/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 9644/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 2024/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1718-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150544 and revision id 28509\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
