Description

Nishimoto talks about meeting his wife during his junior year of high school and the activities they used to do for fun. He also talks about going to Japanese language school for a few years, where he would learn discipline and leadership. He would also attend a Mormon church and begin to follow that faith, even having a self led group of soldiers in the 442nd that would continue to follow the religion. He also talks a bit more about his childhood in Hawaii, getting into trouble often and learning what consequences were. Next, he talks about being on his rooftop, watching the Japanese planes attack Pearl Harbor and trying to understand why it was happening. To prove his loyalty, he and his friends would volunteer for the Army right after.
