Merry Christmas 442nd Combat Team Card

Description
The 442nd Combat Team was a segregated division of the US Army made up of second-generation Japanese Americans. Many of these men left the relocation camps to fight in combat. Family members stayed connected to their loved ones overseas, sending them small gifts and mementos. This Christmas card was sent to a special person in Topaz Relocation Center from Ken Nihei, a 442nd soldier stationed in Italy.
