I was only 5 and 6 years old but still have memories of Minidoka. The book " The Minidoka Story" by Ichikawa reminds me of those experiences of a large family and the kids in the camp. Our large family occupied two units. Two of my brothers served during this period George (Joker), in Europe and Jerry in Japan. I fortunately served in the Standby Reserve for the US Army for 6 years.
