Tsuda discusses playing football in high school and being named the team captain. Next, he talks about where he was when he first heard on the radio that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor. Due to the executive order 9066, he and his family would be forced to evacuate their home and move to the SalinasTemporary Detention Center, which was the rodeo grounds. After a short time there, they would head to Poston Concentration Camps, where they would sneak off to the Colorado River and eat rattlesnake soup. He would work there, putting concrete into the various structures before saying "yes, yes" to the loyalty questions and volunteering to join the Army.
