Description

Kaneshiro gives some final notes about Rohwer Concentration Camp, including how they received news of the 442nd, recreational activities and where to go after the war had ended. Once he had left Rohwer and back in Los Angeles, Kaneshiro had trouble finding steady work until he saw a poster from General MacArthur asking for Japanese speaking Americans who were interested in volunteering for the Army. After joining the Military Intelligence Service (MIS), Kaneshiro was sent to training, and shortly after to Asia. After finally landing in Tokyo, his team worked to interrogate Japanese prisoners of war to try to extract secret information. After 5 years in Tokyo, a few men, including Kaneshiro, were sent to Korea during the Korean War to extract information. After a few months there, he returned to Tokyo where his wife waited for him.
