Japanese-American Memorial

Near the National Mall yesterday, an unusual memorial was dedicated. It honors the 120,000 Japanese-Americans who were sent to internment camps during World War Two, as well as the 30,000 Japanese-American soldiers who served in the military. NPR's Snigdha Prakash reports on the dedication ceremony.
