Tokuichi Muro and Poochie

Jack Muro photographed his father Tokuichi and Poochie standing in the field near their barracks. Their Block 6H is near the administration area towards the entrance of the camp compound and is where many early internees lived as part of the advanced party of workers to help get Amache ready for the arrival of the rest of the inmates. Tokuichi was an Amache policeman. To learn more about Poochie, read "Doggone It" in the Journal section of Discover Nikkei.
