Description

Uchida and Kinoshita continue their recollection of joining the Army. At the time, Uchida was working on the railroads in Montana and Kinoshita was at the Minidoka concentration camp. They talk about their individual basic training at Camp Shelby, and being moved to Fort Snelling for the Military Intelligence Service (MIS). Although they didn't overlap, they would both end up in the Pacific. Kinoshita would end up in the Philippines where he would hold interpreting assignments, while Uchida would be a part of the Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC). Next, they talk about the legacy of the Nisei soldiers and what made them such successful soldiers. They also discuss the reasons for volunteering for the Army and the conditions of Japan during occupation.
