The term "Sen nin bari" literally means 1,000 knots sewn by people, but in a real sense the many knots were sewn by women, and the knots were sewn into sashes, shirts, vests or other items. It is said that each knot represents its makers wish for everlasting fortune at war. This vest was sent to George Matsushita, a member of Company "I", 442nd Regimental Combat Team, from his mother, who was in Granada Relocation Center, Amache, Colorado. George Matsushita wore this vest through many of his battles in Italy during World War II.
