Description

Ouchi begins the interview with an introduction and from there jumps right into Pearl Harbor and the aftermath. He speaks about the hardships of selling the store they owned and the low offers for their personal belongings. After this, Ouchi would go to Minidoka concentration camp and answer the loyalty questionnaire yes, yes meaning he would volunteer for the Army. As he believed it was his duty as an American to fight, others around him had different perspectives, including his father who took a while to come around on the idea. Next, he talks about discrimination, furloughs and how he met his wife.
