Mitsuo (Mike) Iseri, son of Matahichi and Kisa Iseri, was killed in action during World War II. As his closest relative, Matahichi Iseri received a letter from the U.S. Quartermaster General of the Army asking him to complete a form entitled "Request for Disposition of Remains," which enabled him to arrange for the funeral of his son.

October 9, 1947
