U.S. soldiers of Japanese ancestry presenting 442nd Regimental Combat Team flag to President Harry S. Truman in Washington D.C. A soldier stands in profile at left extending a flag with an eagle displayed, facing left, holding a banner, " 442nd Regiment Infantry," with five lances in its right claw and a branch in its left claw on a field of blue bordered by yellow fringe. A taller, older Caucasian man faces the viewer as he grasps the flag staff with both hands. He is dressed in brown and wears a hat and glasses. Six soldiers stand behind them at attention with bayonets attached to rifles. All soldiers are dressed in tan uniform, brown boots and tie, and dark grey helmet. In the background the nation's Capitol is visible in blue under a dusky brown and yellow sky.
