Description

During his high school summer years, Hara would work at a pineapple cannery to earn money for his family, while he lived with his uncle. Later, while working as a carpenter, the Pearl Harbor bombings occurred and all the Japanese were rounded up by the FBI. From that point on, all Japanese were required to wear a black badge when working and had to adhere to a strict curfew. A couple of years later, Hara would then volunteer for the Army and head to Schofield.
