Original caption: Florin, California. This American soldier of Japanese ancestry is shown at the railroad station of a small town in an agricultural community. He and nine other service men of Japanese ancestry received furloughs to enable them to come home to assist their families get ready for evacuation from their west coast homes. He is an older son, which, in the traditional Japanese family structure, means that much responsibility for their welfare depends upon him. He is the only American citizen in their family.
