Description

Yano continues to talk about he and his families time at Gila River Concentration Camp and being reclassified for the draft. After this, he talks about the loyalty questionnaire and knowing he would answer yes, yes to the draft questions. He would end up volunteering for the Army shortly after and receiving a senninbari, which was a traditional Japanese stitched belt for luck. He would be sent to Camp Shelby for basic training, and he remarks on the segregation he saw while visiting Hattiesburg, not knowing which bathroom to use and where to sit on the bus. Next, he talks about joining E Company and the relationship between the Hawaiian and mainland soldiers.
