"Japs Who Pine for the U.S.A. -- These Japanese men, women and children are shown lining up for a meal at Camp Kamoi, Uraga, shortly after their arrival from the United States on the S.S. Matsonia. They were repatriated either because of disloyalty to the U.S. or at their own request. The great majority regret the move. They are loud in their complaints about life in japan. Quarters are poor, food is poor, and the future doesn't look bright. All were accustomed to a high standard of living in the U.S."--caption on photograph
