Ouchi continues his experiences after joining the Army out of the Minidoka concentration camp. First, he speaks about the discrimination he saw in the south when training in Mississippi and the troubles between the Hawaiian and Mainland soldiers. Next, he speaks about the wound he received while in combat and the experience that he had during his first combat mission in Italy. After recovering from his wound, he headed back out to join the 522nd, and in Germany, he would see the remains of the Auschwitz slave labor camps.
