Description

Oye continues his recollection of joining the Army by taking his brothers draft spot and reporting to Camp Robinson. He would first begin his training there before being sent to Camp Crowder to begin training with the Quartermaster Corps, and not being around many Nisei soldiers. Next, he talks about Executive Order 9066 and his parents being sent to the Puyallup assembly center and then Minidoka concentration camp in Idaho. He would be reassigned to training at Camp Carson, then Camp Hale to do office work before finally landing at Camp Shelby in Mississippi. There, he found out about the 442nd Regiment being formed and would become a squad leader. He talks about the maneuvers and Earl Finch, and what it was like to be in the South during that time. After this, he would be sent to Newport News to be shipped out to Europe.
