The internment of Japanese people during World War 2 may be a distant memory for some, but for those who lived it or had family members who did are still carrying the impact. One of those people is Marie Nash, former long-time aide to Senator Ted Stevens. Her Japanese father was sent to a camp and her Aleut mom insisted on going with him. Marie was born in a camp.
