Frank Mizufuka oral history interview, part 2 of 8, July 20, 2003
Frank Mizufuka was a troublemaker in high school -- he dyed his hair red to fit in with his Caucasian classmates. He took judo lessons and wrestling, and also played football for Whittier High School. In high school, he was a part of student government, and enjoyed crashing parties with his friends so that he could be mentioned in the school newspaper. He had little aspirations of leaving home -- he intended to take over the family farm -- because that was all he knew. He attended Fullerton Community College and enlisted into the military before the war broke out. He describes what he was doing the day of the Pearl Harbor attack.
