Example text

By mid-1943, the wra’s management realized that a formal program of segregation would allow the project directors to rid their camps of their troublemakers while at the same time emphasizing to the outside world that the internees whom the wra was releasing from the relocation centers for jobs in the interior were truly trustworthy. ≥∞ pressures on the presumption of disloyalty : 27 Freedom, Confinement, and Loyalty It should now be clear that the Japanese Americans in the wra’s relocation centers in late 1942 and early 1943 sat at the convergence point of many conflicting pressures toward both freedom and confinement.

They were vents pointing in opposite directions—toward release from camp for some internees, and toward deeper confinement, and ultimately toward Japan, for others. The criterion of selection was the troubled concept of loyalty—and for that reason, the vents ended up building at least as much pressure as they relieved. The first of the vents that began to open was the War Relocation Authority’s furlough or ‘‘leave’’ program. As noted earlier, as early as the spring of 1942, the wra had allowed a relatively small number of internees to leave camp on what came to be called ‘‘seasonal’’ leave in order to help local farmers with the fall harvest.

This vent was the option of Nisei military service. Reopening the military to Japanese Americans had taken a lot of time and e√ort. As early as the middle of 1942, Assistant Secretary of War John McCloy, wra director Dillon Myer, and the Japanese American Citizens League had all begun urging the army to return the Nisei to ‘‘1-A’’ status under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940 and to reopen the draft. But General DeWitt at the Western Defense Command (wdc) did not like the idea of Nisei military service at all.
