American Heroes: Japanese American World War II Nisei Soldiers and the Congressional Gold Medal was developed by the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in collaboration with the National Veterans Network and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Accompanying educational materials were developed by the National Veterans Network in partnership with the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.

Cole Chemical is the lead sponsor for the national tour. Additional support is provided by AARP, Comcast/NBC Universal, the Japanese American Veterans Association, Pritzker Military Library, the Shiratsuki Family, Southwest Airlines, and the Spirit Mountain Community Fund.
