Description

Umeda talks more about the Gila River Concentration Camp and the living conditions in Arizona, surrounded by barbed wire but being able to go outside of the camp occasionally. He would end up leaving the camp and working at a cannery and living in a boarding house in the midwest. Then, he would begin trade school at Dunwoody Institute in Minneapolis, working at a bakery after class. While working, he would receive his draft notice, and head to Camp Blanding for his basic training. However, he would be rerouted to Fort Snelling to begin his time in the Military Intelligence Service (MIS).
