Description

Don Seki talks about his life after the war. His parents, who were living in Japan during the war, were unaware of his service in the U.S. Army. After his civil service in Japan, he moved to Los Angeles to work for the U.S. Navy at Terminal Island. He met his wife in Long Beach, and they had three children. He believes that it is important to educate others about the Nisei veterans' experience. He describes the two Japanese good luck charms ("Senninbari"/"Omamori") that many Nisei soldiers carried with them during their service. At the end of the clip, he shares various photographs from his military experience.
