After World War Two, American men wanted to bring their brides back to America with them from Europe and Asia. The War Brides Act of 1945 made it possible. But it excluded Asian women who married American servicemen. Many Japanese women, working to support their families after the devastation of WWII, fell in love with American soldiers stationed there. During the Korean War and later during the Vietnam War, the same thin g happened, and young men and women endured ridicule, bureaucracy and discrimination to stay together.
