Full title:Mr. Yasuke Sakei and daughter being interviewed by Miss Ralston of the United Press while en route from the Rohwer Relocation Center to Sacramento, California, via the Rohwer Special. On this trip, 450 Japanese American residents of California were brought back to their homes after residence of over three years at the Rohwer Center at McGehee, Arkansas. Met by several officers of the WRA at Sacramento, Robert Allison, Assistant Relocation Officer at the Rohwer Center, who accompanied the returnees and all the passengers, reported a satisfactory and uneventful trip during the 2,000 miles, over lines of four railways and with equipment varying from a fairly modern cafe car to antiquated wooden coaches of the gaslight era. However, there were no complaints from the returnees, numbering young, old and babies in arms, with a tourist sleeper reserved for the aged and a few who were ill. En route several crowded troop trains, in some cases bearing G.I.'s back from the South Pacific, were met by the Rohwer Special on sidings. All reported that hearty and cordial greetings were exchanged. Disembarking at various stations between Sacramento and Los Angeles, the returnees found many friends to greet them, both Caucasian and Japanese Americans. The unanimous verdict? We're glad to get home! Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Sacramento, California.
