1 postcard from Ted Hirasaki to Clara Breed. Undated, so date is estimated.

Dear Miss Breed,/I am still here in camp and still waiting for orders. The sentiment in camp is very good now. Thanx to the S.D. group (our block has the most volunteers of all 3 camps) the ball has been rolling toward the good ole American spirit. The majority of people are now behind us. Poston is second to Minidoka Camp in the number of volunteers. Our camouflage net projects are going full speed. Caucasians are amazed at production. Yessiree everything OK./Sincerely yours,/Ted.
