About this product
- DescriptionInternment, Korea, to Solitude is an intimate glimpse into the soul of one man who, as a child, was subjected to terrible discrimination, yet chose to serve his country. Robert Wada, in his heartfelt memoir, shares the painful story of being a Japanese American who, during World War II, is sent with his family to an internment camp. The author gives us more than a history lesson-although it serves as one very well. He offers an insight into choices made and circumstances that often unfold beyond our control. Wada married young and joined the Marine Corps. During the Korean War, he lost his 18-year-old wife to illness and his lifelong friend in battle. As the years unfolded, and as Wada questioned the meaning of his life and a persistent solitude, he nevertheless created a new family and a dedication to horing those who died in battle. This is a reminder that a life lived with pain can also be a life lived with dignity, purpose, and hope.
- Author BiographyRobert M. Wada was born in Redlands, California, of Japanese parents who settled in the United States in 1911. During World War II, the author and his family were sent to an internment camp, where they remained for three years. Upon returning to Redlands, Wada completed high school and joined the United States Marines. After serving in the military, which included battle in the Korean War, he returned to the States, where he subsequently married and raised a family. Robert Wada is instrumental in the creation of multiple memorials honoring Japanese American soldiers who died in battle. He remains dedicated to all Americans who died in America's wars and conflicts.
