Description
Full title:T/Sgt. Thomas K. Tsubota of Honolulu, one of 14 Nisei sent to General Merrill's Marauders in India in September, 1943. He is now a patient in Palm Springs army hospital for treatment of chronic malaria contracted in jungle fighting, and dropped in to the WRA Los Angeles office to say hello. The Los Angeles Daily News at the time ran a half-column story with picture. Sgt. Tsubota joined the U.S. Army in June, 1941, so is a pre-Pearl Harbor veteran. His outfit captured the first enemy in the Pacific when they nabbed a Jap midget submarine operator off a Hawaii reef on December 8, 1941. Sgt. Tsubota was trained as an interpreter, but as all Merrill's men were combat troops he went through a stiff course in commando and jungle fighting, raiding Jap assigned to General Stilwell's command, and now is in the United States. Photographer: Mace, Charles E. Los Angeles, California.
