CITIZENS' BURDENS
Atoitt^dly this past year has been for you a period

Your oim burdens have differed from those of tlie
!majorityof our population in kind end in degree,'bring-

'which led to your present situation were studied as

TWO PROBLEMS
When war Game between
Japan and the United States,
there war a iraned lately two
difficult problems for our
g0V8rr4U8nt in connection
with the part of its popu-
lation wMch is of Jaoaaese
blood The first was how
to deal fairly with the
loyal citizen who wishes
only to serve this country.
The second was how to pro-
xy the loyalty- of those a-
mong you who wished only to
serve tha United States*
Of that the government
has been aware, but one
risk or the other had to
bQ taken, and it seemed
best to count upon the coix-
tinuing loyalty of those
whoso hearts and minds were
v/ith. this country rather
than to accept the danger
from the disloyal acts of
those who were not so.
It is felt now that be-
fore aay change is made
aad before you are asked
to make any new decisions
these words in explanation
are owed to you.
MANPOWER WANT
Wha t is wanted by your
goverrimsut is that your

worry and hardship, for
thacse will oontinue for all
of us unt IX the war is won-
But it does mean that such
hardships as you ara now
experianoing will be grad-
ually replaced by tlia same
hardships which are now
being experieixGed by other
iimerican families the
hardships of saying good-
"bye to family when you leave
home to fight for the United
States and the hardship of
getting along without rnpny
things which Amerloans have
always regarded as nsoes-
sities,
NISEI WANTED
.-tine rioa ns of Japanese
blood are wanted to fight
for the United States like
any other Gitizens They
are wanted for GOiUbat duty
where tiaey are fitted for
combat duty and for war
work where they are bast
suited for war ..ork. They
are wanted because the gov-
ernment and the Army are
oonvinoed of their loyalty.
Aad they are want ad not
lass because of their abil-
ity as soldiers and as cit-
isens doing useful worlc for
the Amerioan community.
You have superior qualifi-
cations fr the kind of
service in \miGh it is in-
tended to use you.
These are among the pri-
mary purposes of the ques-
tionnaire which is to' be
executed by you Those
vJlio are willing and are
loyal? of military age and
physically fit, are being
asked to volunteer for in-
duotion into the Army of
the United States. Those
who are loyal but for some
reason are not qualified
for military servicethe
young man and young vjomaxx
will be given the oppor-
tunity to support the war
affort by 'work on the home
front.
MAJOIl. PURPOSE
The major purpose of
what is being done her09
however 3 Is that:
Thera are some indivi-
duals in this center whose
ties witn the Japanese em-
pire are suqh as to dis-
qualify them for positions
of trust in this oountr^.,
This does not mean that
they will not be treated
humanely 3 but it does mean
that it would be unwise
for this government in this
time of crisis to give them
an opportunity to endanger
the national security.
Therefore, steps must be
taken to determine those
individuals in wb om the
United States can place
full trust and confidencQ,
The questionnaire Is a
means to that end.
Your government would
not take these steps un-
less it intended to go
further in rastoring you
to a normal place in the
life of tha oountry, Kith
the privileges and obi
g. tions of other American
citizens, ^he invitation
to the young men here to
volunteer is simply a to-
ken of its good faith and
further interest.
DRAFT POSSIBLE
As \-vastiiQ case with all
other Americans of military
age who were first given
the obaxiGQ to volunteer for
service, and if they did
not so volunteer wqm then
Iaduoted into the Array via
the Selective Service, it
is contemplated that in
the noml process of build-
ing our Army, those among
you who do riot volunteer
but are of the right age
and physia.illy fit will
probably be taken into tae
military service in due
t iifie
T3it is a part of shar-
ing the lot of the general
population of this coun-
try. You would not want
that you would be treated
differently thanotiier Amer-
icans. Universal service
is now the national policy
and' in the long run. there
Is no better v?ay to appor-
tion our present military
responsibilities.
COMBAT TEAM
However 5 the plan now
taing contemplated is that
Americans of Japanese blood
will be formed into their
cmn oombat team. You may
want to know why it is be-
ing d one this way. The
reason is th^t if your
strength were diffused
through tliQ Army of the
United States--as has al-
ready been done v;ith many
other Amarioans of your
bloou--relatively litt le
aoGQunt would be taken of
your action. You would be
important 0111yas man-power
nothing more. But united 9
and -working together, you
would become a symbol of
something greater thm your
individual selves, and the
effect would be felt both
In tha United States and
abroad ^ All other Ameri-
cans would long remember
vhat you have done for the
country, and/ou woulo "be
a living reproach to tliose
who have been prejudiced
against you because of your
Japanese blood c Can it be
doubted tha t this would
mean a greatly improved
relationship between you
and all other parts of the
Aniericaii pojoul-tion in the
postwar period? To the
nations abroad 9 and espe-
cially to tha peoples of
the Eastyou would provide
the measure of the solidar-
ity of the people who get
together in the name of
democracy.
COMMISSION
Accordingly, you will
be given tba same pay and
the same clianGe for ad-
vancement as other American
soldiers* As you prove
yourself qualified for of-
fIoersbip9you will be given
training for ooinnussioaed
service and the only limits
which will be placed upon
ho\'^ raany of you are advanced
to oommlssioned grade v^ill
be determined by your own
willingness and a bility*
It is recognized that xn
point of aptitude for mil
itary service by reason not
only of your natural abil-
ity but of your education^
many of you are suitable
officer material.
E XPLANATION
It was believed that you
would warrfca straightfor;rd
presentation of this nev;
proposal by the govarnment,
and therefore the explana-
tion of the -lan behind
the questionnaire has been
raade as simply as possible.
It is not neoassary for
me to appeal to the loyal-
ty of those 'id are loyal
If there are any '.[Ues*
tions in your minds with
regard to the "oolicy or to
the quastiormaire, we will
try to answer theai during
our stay he e at the center
