Description

Fukuhara continues his recollection of the time after the Pearl Harbor attacks, and his father being taken in by the FBI. Other than that, things would go on as normal until the Executive Order 9066 was signed. With just a couple days notice, he and his family were forced to take one suitcase each and head to the Puyallup Fairgrounds where they would begin their temporary detention center time. Fukuhara talks about the barbed wire and sad living conditions, including very little privacy. Shortly after, they were moved to the Minidoka Concentration Camp, where they would live in barracks and work for $16 a month. He then talks about the loyalty questions that were given and how he had no loyalty to Japan, so the questions were easy to answer. Later, while attending college in Iowa, he would be drafted into the Army and begin his induction at Fort Douglas.
