Description

Sato talks about his health and the surgery that he had and the emotions that he has had because of it, which is much different than the Japanese culture he grew up knowing. Next, he talks about being drafted into the Army and being sent to Honolulu's Schofield Barracks before being sent to the mainland to begin his basic training. He would first get to Fort Lewis in Washington before being sent to Camp Wolters in Texas. While there, he and the other Hawaiian soldiers would experience their first snows. Then, he would be sent to Fort Snelling to begin his stint with the Military Intelligence Service. He talks about hearing of the end of war and being shipped overseas to Tokyo and then to the Philippines with ATIS.
