Description

Hagiwara continues talking about his experience in the National Guard and the times leading up to Pearl Harbor, as they worried more about Russia invading than Japan. Next, he talks about his whereabouts during the attacks on Pearl Harbor, hearing about it through the National Guard switchboards and hearing of the casualties, one of which was the brother of a close friend. He would soon after be notified that he was going to be transferred to another division in the military, so he went on to Fort Lewis in Washington. He talks about his correspondence with his family during the war, including seeing his father.
