Description

On the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Frank Mizufuka was on weekend furlough at his family's home. Once the news of the bombing was publicized, he had to report back to training camp. Instead of being sent overseas with the Caucasian units, he was sent to Camp Robinson in Little Rock, Arkansas with other Nisei recruits. In Arkansas, he witnessed segregation between whites and blacks. His family was relocated to Rohwer Relocation Center, and he visited them often. Instead of being shipped overseas as a replacement for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, he remained at Camp Robinson due to the importance of his job -- he was responsible for discharging recruits who were deemed unfit for duty.
