Description

Ichiuji continues to talk about the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp and the inhumanity of it. Next, he talks about the end of the war and his trip back to the United States, celebrating when he saw the Statue of Liberty. He would be discharged from the Army at Fort Douglas where he would see his brother once again and begin his education using the GI Bill. He talks briefly about his family background, including his marriage and children. After this, he talks about the legacy of the Nisei soldiers, sacrificing their lives for what we have today. He also notes that future generations should know what happened, the terribleness of war and that Japanese Americans should be proud of who they are.
