Description
Full title:S/Sgt. Henry H. Gosho, left, and Pfc. James Yura, right, are seen looking over War Relocation Authority photographs of some of their comrades. Sgt. Gosho served 16 months in the Burma-India theatre attached to Army Combat Intelligence with General Frank Merrill's Marauders until April, 1945, at which time he returned to the United States and is now convalescing at Fitzsimons General Hospital preparatory to being given a medical discharge. He wears the Presidential Citation, Bronze Star, the Pacific Ribbon with 3 campaign stars, the Combat Infantry Badge, and the shoulder patch of Merrill's Marauders. He was nicknamed Horizontal Hank because of his ability to hit the ground fast when a shell came his way. Although declared by doctors to be flat-footed and not qualified physically for combat, he walked 1030 miles and contracted malaria 7 times in addition to other tropical diseases. Prior to evacuation to Minidoka, his parents operated a drug store in Seattle. Pvt. Yura joined the 442nd Combat Team, an all Japanese-American outfit, just north of Rome and fought north through Italy with it assigned to a machine-gun section. In the Vosges Forest in France he participated in the rescue of the Lost Battalion, the 141st Regiment from Texas. He was wounded in Southern France, November 6, 1945, and was hospitalized two months in England before being returned to the United States. His mother, Mrs. Mikiyo Yura, and two sisters, Mrs. George Kaneko and Mrs. Everett Itanaga, live in Denver. He volunteered from Poston, May 1943, and wears the Purple Heart and a Presidential Citation. His home before evacuation was Bakersfield, California. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Denver, Colorado.
