A letter from Makoto Okine to his father, Seiichi Okine. He writes probably from Italy where he is deployed as a US Army soldier. The letter is mailed via Army/Air Post Office, New York, by U.S. Army Postal Service. The letter was originally addressed to Bartlet Illinois, where Makoto assumes Seiichi stays and farms with Ayame Okine, then it was forwarded to the Rohwer incarceration camp, Arkansas. In the letter, Makoto expects that he would be able to go back to the U.S. within the year. The handwritten notes on the back of the envelope read: Arrived on September 1, 1945 [in Japanese].
