Full title:Five sons in the Army! Ten children in all. This is the proud record of Mr. and Mrs. Takejiro Kodama, lately from Poston Center, now waiting out the war on the ranch home of their son-in-law, Shigio Masunaga near San Jose. With them are Ruth, 16; Roy, 14; and Geraldine, 12. Mr. Kodama is 66 and Mrs. Kodama is 54. In the army are Cpl. Shosaku in Australia, Pfc. Harry in the famous 442nd in Europe, Pfc. James at Fort Meade, Pfc. George at Fort Knox and Pfc. Oscar is at Camp Hood, Texas. Mrs. Shig Masunaga (nee Hiroko Kodama) is mighty happy to have her family with her for the duration. We are a bit crowded, she said, but we do not mind. Mother helps out around the house and father putters around the garden. The important thing is we are all out of camp together. Prior to evacuation the Kodamas resided in the Imperial Valley. Tamiki Kodama, tenth of the Kodama children, has relocated in Salt Lake City.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> San Jose, California.
