Description

After arriving in Germany, Sakamoto would begin his time with occupational forces, where he would end up going to clerical school, being a typist in Heidelberg. After this, he talks about meeting his wife, while working as a typist. They would court each other and fall in love, but Sakamoto decided to complete his college degree first, heading first to UC Berkeley before going back to Germany to get married. He talks about not telling his parents about the marriage at first as he knew they would be disappointed that she wasn't Japanese, but in the end they would accept her. He then talks about his family background, including his children.
