Description

After getting wounded during the Lost Battalion campaign, Ota would return to the United States to recover and rehabilitate for about a year and a half. He discusses the recognition he received from other members of the military after the war and the legacy that the Nisei soldiers left. Next, he talks about his marriage and family. After this, he discusses some more of his war time experiences, including more on the Lost Battalion and how he feels that General Dahlquist was ungrateful and undeserving of the men that were lost from the 442nd Regiment. He gives a message for future generations before being joined by his granddaughter Angie, who teaches Japanese students about the American concentration camps.
