Letter to the Secretary of War from President Roosevelt regarding the formation of all-nisei combat teams. Roosevelt discusses loyalty and Americanism as being "a matter of mind and heart," not about "race or ancestry." Roosevelt views this as a way for Japanese Americans to be included in showing their ultimate loyalty to the U.S.
