Friday's episode of Hawaii Five-0 pays tribute to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent executive order that established Japanese internment camps on the Pacific Coast.
"I think that not many people know about our country's past, and I think it's really important that these stories don't die," star Daniel Dae Kim tells TVGuide.com.
