Description

In May 1984, Shigeo retires from Northrop Grumman and returns to Hawaii to live with his sister. Shigeo is grateful for those who have shown him gratitude for his service, especially his doctors. He shares his experience of appreciation with the doctors who care for him. Moreover, another morale booster for Shigeo is attending the 442nd reunion.

Shigeo's advice for future generations is to vote and voice your opinions to politicians. Be a good citizen, and respect your country. We need to honor those who are killed in the war for our freedom.
