Description

Mr. Mitsui describes the living conditions and facilities at Tule Lake and discusses the "no-no boys" who were moved into the camp. He talks about joining the Army and the hurt of losing a close family friend who served in the 442nd in Italy. Just as Mr. Mitsui was about to be shipped out, the war in Europe ended. Likewise the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan, so Mr. Mitsui ended up serving in the Counter Intelligence Corps in occupied Japan. Mr. Mitsui describes his duties serving as an investigator in Japan.
