Description
Full title:Pfc. Edwin Ohki, 21, (left) and Pvt. Ichiro (Bill) Kato, 22, wounded members of the famous 442nd Combat Team which distinguished itself in the fighting in Italy, are shown looking at magazines in the recondition ward at Fitzsimons General Hospital near Denver. Both volunteered for the army in February, 1943, while at the Granada Relocation Center in Colorado. Kato was machine-gunned in the left leg six miles from Pisa last July 21. Kato was a native of Sacramento, California. Ohki was wounded in the right arm and chest by artillery fire south of Leghorn July 13. A brother, Arnold, was killed near Leghorn on July 7, 1944. Another brother, Kenneth, 22, was inducted into the army last September and is now in training at Camp Hood, Texas. Ohki and his family lived at Livingston, California, prior to evacuation from the West Coast in March, 1942. Both Kato and Ohki received their preliminary training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi.
