Description

Sakamoto continues to talk about his time at Heart Mountain concentration camp in Wyoming. He would work there as a swamper, sneaking out of the camp sometimes to hike the nearby mountains or play in the ravines. He would later be presented with the famous loyalty questionnaire in which he and his family would answer no-no, which would land them all in Tule Lake concentration camp. While there, the security was much heavier and the residents would pass the time by playing baseball. He talks about hearing about the 100th Infantry and 442nd Regiment and the sacrifices they were making. Next, he would hear about the end of the war and be admitted to leave the camp.
