Description

During the New Guinea Campaign, Harry Fukuhara was assigned to interrogate a Japanese POW -- who reportedly was giving everyone a hard time. Upon meeting the Japanese officer for interrogation, Harry realized that the prisoner was his childhood friend from Hiroshima (and they are still good friends to this day). Harry goes on to talk about the Invasion of Japan and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. During the Occupation, he re-enlisted so that he could return to Japan and visit the bombsite in Hiroshima.
