Description

Miyamoto continues his recollection of growing up on Hilo, where his pidgin English was heavy and his normal English was inconsistent. After graduation from high school, he and his family would move to Kalihi on Oahu. It was there that he would see the attacks on Pearl Harbor, thinking that it was just a military maneuver. Shortly after, his uncle would be taken in by the FBI, until after joining the Army, Miyamoto would write a letter to the military government asking for his release. He would be transported to the mainland and taken to basic training at Camp Shelby, as part of the original 442nd Regiment. Next, he talks about his first combat experience, facing discrimination, and seeing his cousin who was fighting with the 100th Regiment.
