Description

Nakamura discusses life in Hawaii during the war time, including martial law and heavy food rations. He talks about the various restrictions that the civilians had, and the few things that they would do for fun, such as going to the movies. He then talks about how the 100th and 442nd were formed and the background of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS). He also talks about his personal identity during the wartime, and learning about the American concentration camps in the mainland. During this time, he was in high school, and would continue on as usual, taking English courses and putting out a yearbook. Only a couple of months after his high school graduation, he would be drafted into the Army and head to Schofield Barracks where he would be notified of his assignment to the Military Intelligence Service.
