Description

Inada talks about his shipment to mainland America, seeing the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge on the way and then landing in Oakland. When arriving, all soldiers would have their diaries taken away and told they would not be able to get them back. Next, he talks about his unit, starting with the 1st Battalion in C Company as a sergeant, and later asked to stay to be a cadre for training. He talks about Camp Shelby, and the relationship between the Hawaiian and mainland soldiers, and the segregation of colored people in the South. Shortly after that, he would head to Newport News, where he would be shipped overseas by way of the Rock of Gibraltar.
