When World War II began, Kikue’s husband was interned in the Santa Fe Internment Camp. He had played a leading role in the Japanese communities, serving as the construction committee chairman for the Japanese hospital in Kona and the school affairs committee chairman for Kealakekua Japanese Language School.
Left in Hawaii, Kikue communicated with her husband through letters.
