Description

Nakashima discusses encountering a tank and seeing human flesh. Nakashima recalls the worst part of being a soldier is casualties of friends and enemies. Rather than remembering the negative, Nakashima prefers to think of the positive experiences. He does not want his family seeing him cry, therefore he limits what war experiences he shares. Nakashima speaks on the Nisei Legacy, his interpretation of a relocation camp and Native Americans. Moreover, he shares advice for the future generations.
