Description

Yokote continues talking about his experiences in the 206th band, including raising morale for the unit as a whole and helping soldiers deal with the harsh conditions of war. After the war, he would return home and be discharged at Beale Air Force Base in California, where he would find out that his family was already back in Loomis. He would return to their property to find everything still there and his family welcoming him warmly. After this, he gives a message for future generations to take pride in the country you're born in and not debase it. He finishes by talking about his marriage background and career background.
