Description

Takashima continues his discussion on self identity during this time, as his family was being held in the camps and he was drafted by the Army. He began his basic training in Alabama where he would train for heavy weaponry, including the antitank cannon and mortars. Next, he would be shipped to Italy to begin combat, starting in Naples and going throughout Italy and France. Being on the mortar team, he would only have to actually shoot the mortar gun one time throughout his time in Europe, but he would have a lot of experiences. Finally, while involved with the Gothic Line push, the German soldiers surrendered and that would spell the end of the war for Takashima.
