Description
Full title:S/Sgt. Jack N. Kawamoto gave an eye to the cause of liberty in Italy and a large part of his time to the cause of relocation since arriving at Dibble General Hospital, Palo Alto, for hospitalization. Jack enlisted in March 1943 in Honolulu with the 442nd Combat Team and received his basic training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi. He went overseas in April 1944 and four months later in August of the same year a sniper's bullet got him at Leghorn, Italy. Jack had just finished high school when he was inducted. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. R. Kawamoto of Honolulu. Since arriving at Dibble Hospital Sgt. Jack has spoken for the cause of relocation to many audiences throughout Central California, particularly in Santa Clara County where he has the name if not the emoluments of relocation officer. He is 21 years of age. Sgt. Jack wears the following: Purple Heart, ETO ribbon with one battle star, and Combat Infantry Badge. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Palo Alto, California.
