A letter from Masao Okine to his parents, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. He writes from Japan where he is stationed as a Nisei soldier. He reports to his parents about their relatives and friends in Hiroshima: He took ten days vacation to visit Hiroshima and found that the Hiroshima City was completely destroyed by the atomic bombing. He confirmed the safety of Naoji Okine and his wife, the Sasakis, and the Nakanos. He also met the Tanakas and the Matsuokas in Hiroshima, who used to be their neighbors in Montebello, California. During the vacation, Masao stayed in Naoji Okine's place for five nights and in Jokichi Yamanaka's place for two nights. He expresses his appreciation for their courtesy. He also informs of the arrival of his parents' letter and is relieved to learn that they are receiving the U.S. military family allowance checks and are also doing well in a new house.
