WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Department today is re-dedicating its Eastern Region headquarters in Spokane in the name of Fred Shiosaki, a former state Fish and Wildlife Commissioner who lives in Spokane Valley.
In addition to his service to fish and wildlife, Shiosaki last fall received the Congressional Gold Medal in a ceremony honoring the Nisei Soldiers of World War II. Shiosaki was a member of the U.S. Army All Volunteer Japanese-American 442nd Infantry Regiment.
Shiosaki was instrumental in getting the new Fish and Wildlife facilities completed in Spokane in 2009.
