Sato begins this portion of the interview by looking through a couple of pictures, and then speaks about his shipment overseas, which took around 11 days in a convoy. When arriving in France, the weather would be cold, having snow on the ground and then joining up with the 442nd's A Company as a replacement. He talks about the some of his war experiences, including seeing German soldiers for the first time and not being able to shower for two months. He also talks about the experience of being in the middle of live combat and even taking care of a cavity during combat.
