From marriage to internment

4/27/1942

George and Michiko Ushida were married in Berkeley, California, on April 22, 1942. Two days later, they left for the Tanforan assembly center in San Bruno, California, enroute to one of 10 relocation centers established following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered people of Japanese descent living on the West Coast, many of them American citizens, to internment camps amid fears they would support Japan during World War II.
