Description

Yokote talks about a photograph that shows members of the band he was involved in. After this he talks about the advantages of being in the band as opposed to an infantryman. As he wasn't involved in much front line duty, he was stunted in his promotional growth but would finish as a private first class, but would not be at risk as much as an infantryman. He gives praise to those that were part of the infantry and also to all those that were a part of the military service overseas. Next, he talks about the assignments they had as a band, including involvement with the Lost Battalion and Vosges Mountain campaigns. They would also be involved with memorial services, parades and sometimes even concerts.
