Description

Sato talks about proving his loyalty to the United States, and the various ideals of the Japanese Americans. On his way to Camp Shelby, he would make a stop in Jackson, Mississippi and notice the segregation and prejudice that was prevalent throughout the South. Next, he talks about his experiences in Camp Shelby, joining up with the boxing team and going to Rohwer Concentration Camp for an exhibition. They would soon after get shipped overseas, landing first in Glasgow, Scotland, before going on to Le Havre in France. As this was just after the Lost Battalion campaign, he talks about the more relaxed two months they had in France before being sent over to Italy.
