Description

Hara was a bit of a troublemaker, and he gives a couple of anecdotes to prove it. Later, the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion found itself at the Dachau concentration camp after it had closed, and Hara speaks about the sights and smells of being in such a place. Next, he discusses photography, rations, and sending his extra money back home to his family. Last, he speaks about the end of the war and the things he missed most from Hawaii.
