Description

Doi talks about his reasons leading up to joining the Army, including having feelings that the United States would get involved with the war, and forming the Varsity Victory Volunteers (VVV). He would be inducted and be shipped over to the mainland, getting very seasick along the way. After this, he discusses citizenship and politics after Pearl Harbor. Once arrived on the mainland, he would head to Mississippi via train ride, and get to Camp Shelby. There, he would be assigned to the antitank company and begin his basic training for the 442nd Regimental Combat Team.
