Description

Yokote has an in depth discussion on his family's time in the American concentration camps. As he was angry about the way Japanese Americans were being treated, he at first refused to visit his family while at the Tule Lake concentration camp. His family would later be moved from Tule Lake to Amache concentration camp, which he felt was a better situation and was able to visit while on a leave. He talks about how Issei and Nisei were more stoic and didn't often show emotions or express how they felt, which may have hampered them during the war. After this, he talks about the values he was taught growing up and how those values would later help him when joining the Army.
