Hoashi discusses more about growing up on Kauai. At the age of 12, he would begin working at McBride plantation during the summers. He also talks about the impactful people he knew during this period of time. From there, he gives us his whereabouts during the attacks on Pearl Harbor, hearing it first on the radio, and then running down to the baseball fields to inform others. After that, he would be moved to the electrical department at McBride plantation, but the island would be under martial law. As he heard about a regiment forming in the Army, he made the decision to volunteer.
