Description

Ichiuji continues to talk about being in Poston concentration camp with his family, the living conditions being poor but they were able to set up a shoe repair shop. He would then volunteer to join the 442nd and talks about the loyalty questions they were forced to answer in the camps. He would get inducted at Fort Douglas before heading to Camp Shelby. He talks about his first exposure to segregation in the south, not knowing if they should use the white or colored bathrooms. Next, he talks about the relationships between the Hawaiian and mainland soldiers. He also talks about doing maneuvers in Louisiana and how the locals in those areas were very friendly, making them fried chicken.
