May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Month, and with this series of short profile videos, we remember some of the "firsts" in the United States Navy.

In 1972, his plane was shot down and he was taken prisoner by the North Vietnamese, eventually imprisoned at the infamous Hanoi Hilton. Learn more about Nakagawa and his accomplishments in this video. This video is narrated by Museum Military Educator, Matthew Headrick.
