Description

Umeda gives more background on his siblings, and what it was like to grow up on a farm, picking grapes and saving money to go to junior college. He talks about the other recreational activities he did with his siblings, including skating and swimming in the canals. He talks more about growing up in Selma, including the population and going to high school, where his favorite subject would be chemistry. Keeping a science background, he hoped to become a pharmacist and own his own business as it was difficult to find a job due to discrimination. Next, he talks about the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the effects it had on his family.
