Bainbridge Island Historical Museum Has a New Exhibit!
Bainbridge Island and its people played a significant role during World War II. Four hundred ninety-two islanders served, of whom 17 gave their lives, two others were Medal of Honor recipients, and four others were members of the famous all-Japanese 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Fort Ward and Battle Point together provided very important radio communications services for American ships and as a listening post for Japanese diplomatic and military radio communications. Seventeen steel-hulled minesweepers were built at the Winslow Shipyard.
