Description

Teramura discusses seeing Ambassador Nomura while living near Portland and what it was like to work on the sugar beet farms. There, he would face some prejudice which gave him a little bit of a scare. Next, he talks about visiting his family at the Minidoka concentration camp and the living conditions there. He would be drafted into the Army shortly after and be inducted at Fort Douglas. He would have his basic training at Camp Blanding in Florida with the 442nd Regiment. He would be sent overseas and arrive in Le Havre, France, catching up with the 442nd shortly after one of their battles. He would be involved in Leghorn but wouldn't see the front line until after the war.
