Description
Full title:Tech. Sgt. Minoru Masukane, believed to be the first Nisei discharge from the Army on points, visits Los Angeles to plan for the future. He is here seen scanning the want ads in a Los Angeles paper, with the help of Miss Mary Suzuki, a returnee to the west coast from Manzanar. Sgt. Masukane, born in Brawley, Calif., joined in the Army Nov. 4, 1941. He was in action in New Guinea (three bronze stars) and under enemy fire in the Philippine Invasion (one bronze star). His 42 months in the Army, 25 of which were overseas in the Pacific, together with the four bronze stars, gave him 87 points, entitling him to an immediate honorable discharge. His parents are at Poston: Setsuichi Masukane and Kumi. Photographer: Mace, Charles E. Los Angeles, California.
