Description

Inada discusses more about his unit detail, going from C Company to K Company as replacements were all moved. He also talks about replacements and his brother that passed away in Europe after the war had ended. Next, he talks about his first combat, seeing German soldiers and taking down machine gun nests. He also talks about the humanity of many of the Nisei soldiers, multiple times letting German soldiers live instead of taking an easy shot to take them out. After this, he talks about the rescue of the Lost Battalion only two days after finishing a different battle. He gives more anecdotes about the battle and some of the things that he saw, including experiencing the stench of a dead body.
