    One of the soldier pictured is my father Edward Shiro Nishi based at Camp Savage/Ft Snelling during that period. I have been going through some of my father's old pictures. Comment: the picture as shown is reversed, the tell is the reversed lettering on the books.

    Which soldier in the picture is Edward Shiro Nishi because the soldier on the right facing the camera looks exactly like my father, Kiyoshi(Jerry)Tsuyuki!
