This is followed by a brief biography of Minoru, from his childhood in Seattle as the child of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Issei\">Issei</a> immigrants who ran a hotel, his education at the University of Washington in pharmacology, his marriage to Haru, and their incarceration, first at <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Puyallup (detention facility)\">\"Camp Harmony\"</a> (Puyallup, Washington), then Minidoka. Minoru volunteered for the 442nd out of Minidoka, and was made a medic. \n</p><p>The letters comprise the bulk of the volume, and trace Minoru's experiences with the 442nd, the challenges he and other medics faced receiving proper recognition for their experience of combat, his longings for home, descriptions of the European cities he and other soldiers visited between battles, and his thoughts about the future. The letters themselves are occasionally interspersed with commentary by Hana as well as entries from the Medical Detachment Log that explain where he was when he was writing the letters—his exact location was something he was not allowed to disclose in the letters themselves. \n</p>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Author_Background\">Author Background</span></h2>\n<p>Minoru Masuda (1915-80) was a psychiatrist in Seattle who also actively worked towards seeking redress. He was born in Seattle and had received his Masters in Pharmacology from the University of Washington when he and his family were excluded from the West Coast. He initially did not intend to return to Washington because of the bad memories associated with exclusion, but was convinced by a former professor to continue his education at the University of Washington. After he was discharged from the army, he returned with his wife to Seattle, where he established a career in psychiatry. His papers were donated to the University of Washington library archives. \n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Emily Anderson\">Emily Anderson</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Anderson, Emily</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\",_Nisei_Son_(book)\" title=\"Stanley Hayami, Nisei Son (book)\">Stanley Hayami, Nisei Son</a></i> by Joanne Oppenheim; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Memoirs_of_a_Certain_Nisei_(book)\" title=\"Memoirs of a Certain Nisei (book)\">Memoirs of a Certain Nisei, 1916-1985</a></i> by Thomas Taro Higa; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Journey_to_Washington_(book)\" title=\"Journey to Washington (book)\">Journey to Washington</a></i> by Daniel K.
