Description

Nishimoto talks more about his war experiences, including seeing German soldiers and the weapons that they used. He talks about his dislike for snipers and wanting to catch one so that he could take care of him himself. Another assignment included going on a long patrol that was 6 miles behind enemy lines. They would make it all the way to Pisa, where they would find a German soldier washing his face and they would notice each other, causing them to flee. They would continue the patrol and end up confiscating German weapons from various homes, returning to the unit and getting awarded an army commendation.
