A letter from Masao Okine who is stationed in Yokohama, Japan as a Nisei soldier to his parents, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. This letter is mailed via San Francisco by the U.S. Postal Service. In the letter, he describes his work and daily routine in Japan. He has been transferred from Tokyo to Yokohama and his duty is driving a jeep. He gets up at 4:45 AM, eats breakfast at 6:15 AM, and leaves for work at 7:30 AM. He works until 12:30 PM and is free in the afternoon. He assumes that he is going to be discharged around October and his brother, Makoto, who is deployed in Europe as a Nisei soldier, is returning to the U.S. soon. The arrival date of the letter, August 20, 1946, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
