About National Go For Broke Day
Every year, April 5th is celebrated as National "Go For Broke" Day, derived from a saying that’s known to mean "wager everything."
"Go For Broke" also happens to be the motto of one of the most decorated units in U.S. military history, the Army’s 442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT). On April 5th, 1945, the 442nd RCT’s first Medal of Honor recipient, Pfc. Sadao Munemori, was killed in action near Seravezza, Italy.
