Announcement of Revision of Forms DSS Form 304A and WRA Form 126 (Re: Question 28)

Description
Unclear reasoning behind the purpose of these questionnaires and poorly worded questions brought up conflicting feelings. Concerns arose about how to handle a government that both denied rights but asked for military service. Families worried that if members answered differently from each other than the consequences would result in families splitting up and moving to different camps, which was a harsh reality. An announcement circulated around the camps that revised these questionnaires. Clearer language was used to facilitate answering the questions and both English and Japanese translations were distributed for the internees.
