Letter from Yuki Akaki, Technical Sergeant, United States Army, to Miss Hatsume Akaki, January 22, 1945
Akaki received his back-mail the previous day, so he wrote this letter in response to the most recent letter from his sister Hatsume. He asks her if she could send over some Japanese food essentials (rice, soy sauce, etc.) in his next care package. He also writes to make it clear that the money allotment that he is sending home is to be used towards his family’s resettlement from camp. He did not want the money to be used for anything else. He requests for a recent photograph of his parents to be sent in the next letter, as well.
