Description

Mary Yamada shares a photograph of herself during a bivouac at Fort Dicks. She describes her experience at Fort Dicks, where she treated different patients. She mentions that she was often the first Japanese American that people encountered -- an article was written about her for being the first Japanese American teacher at a high school. During the war, her family was relocated to the Heart Mountain incarceration camp. She knows little of how her family felt during their stay there because they rarely corresponded with her through letters. She also describes the different military decorations she was awarded during her military service.
