Fact of the Day (7/28)

Between 1942 and 1945 thousands of Japanese Americans were forced out of their homes and businesses after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Those who helped anyone of Japanese descents were accused of being “Jap lovers” and had their lives put in danger. Bob Fletcher of Sacramento was one of those people. When his neighbors were shipped away from their grape farms to internment camps he stepped in to lend a hand by caring for a total of 90 acres of grapes. Fletcher, now 100 years old, was recognized for his heroism by Sacramento County and now July 26th is known as Bob Fletcher Day.
