Description

Nagasaka discusses gambling that occurred during and on the way home from the war, making a nice profit while he ran the craps games with two other friends. He also talks about the cigarette rations they received and how you could sell them on the black market if needed. Next, he talks about his return to the United States, landing in New York first and seeing the Andrews sisters perform live for them while on the boat. He would make his way to Fort Lewis before getting his discharge and heading back to Oregon. He would head down to San Diego to work on a tuna boat and would talks about various stories from that time, as well as his marriage background.
