Description

Shiosaki continues his recollection of being drafted into the Army and arriving in Le Havre, France as a replacement soldier for the 100th/442nd Regiment. Next, he talks about his various experiences in Europe, including the Gothic Line push and being part of a team to chase down German soldiers at the end of the war, but did not meet any resistance. He also talks about his duties and the squad members that he was there with. Soon after this, both Germany and Japan surrendered, which meant the end of the war. He would be in the second shipment of soldiers home and would be discharged at Fort Lewis, before heading home to Idaho. He would begin his work as a laborer and then a technician while starting a family and settling down in Idaho. Next, he talks about the legacy of the Nisei soldiers and their importance to the war. He finishes up by showing off pictures and awards that he's received.
