Description

Okusa discusses his position as an interrogator during occupied Japan. During his assignments there, he would interrogate a lot of prisoners of war to obtain as much information as possible to send back to the NYK building in Tokyo. He would end up running the interrogation centers that he would open up in Maizuru and Hakodate while only being a staff sergeant. He was also sent to Kyushu and Sakhalin for interrogations. Okusa would also meet his future wife, who was an interpreter during this time as well. Next, he discusses his interrogation techniques and the importance of the Nisei linguists.
