The Military Intelligence Service (MIS) Historic Learning Center was built to preserve a vital part of American history as a tribute to the Japanese American experience and contribution during the World War II. (MIS) Historic Learning Center, situated at Crissy Field on the Presidio of San Francisco, was initially an abandoned airplane hangar which was converted into a Secret Army Language School in 1941. This was set up by the American army for the training of Japanese Americans during the World War II. The institution schooled 58 Japanese Americans as linguists, who worked closely with the American military intelligence in the Pacific in order to provide combat and cultural tactics.
In 1993, the National Japanese American Historical Society proposed the foundation of the centre, as a symbol of peace and reconciliation, which now exhibits MIS Honor Wall including historical database related to the development of MIS, personnel of the Linguist graduates, Pearl Harbor Bombing, internment of the MIS institution, settlement of MIS in Minnesota and the subsequent history and tribute of the Japanese-Americans in the United States.
