A letter from Makoto Okine to his father, Seiichi Okine. He writes from Italy where he is stationed as a Nisei solder. The letter is mailed via New York by the U.S. Army Postal Service. In the letter, he explains how Seiichi would receive 25.00 dollars of the military family allowance monthly. The government deducts 25.00 dollars from Makoto's salary monthly and mail a check to Seiichi. The process takes one or one and half months. He also writes about his brother, Masao, who is also stationed in Japan as a Nisei soldier. He expresses his interest in Japan and wishes that he was deployed in Japan as a Military Intelligence Service soldier. He always worries about his family in California and hopes that he would be discharged soon. The arrival date of the letter, April 4, 1946, is recorded.
