Description

Takemoto describes making friends and meeting mainland soldiers, as well as the fights that broke out between prejudicial soldiers. He guarded German prisoners of War in Dothan, Alabama, and describes their love of movies and ice cream, their breaking out into spontaneous song, and the way they bragged about German weaponry. This leads Takemoto to discuss scenes of battle and collecting the dead from their foxholes. Also discussed is the topic of homesickness and being disappointed by the quality of rice served at Camp Shelby.
