Oye begins the interview speaking about his family and how they came from Japan to Seattle, Washington. His father would work for various places while his mother would volunteer as a midwife to those in need at the Buddhist church. Growing up in Seattle, Oye would take both Japanese language school and regular school, while making friends and playing baseball. His favorite subjects were algebra and painting and he would play baseball, even getting to go down to Tacoma for a game. Next, he talks about his high school days, working at a salmon cannery in Alaska during the summers and working as a waiter at a country club until the war broke out. He discusses the Japanese Americans that broke curfew and were taken in by law enforcement.
