Description

While on the front lines, the Nisei soldiers made sure to watch out for minefields. Rudy taught the new recruits how to look for mines and told them not to yell "mines" -- or else the others would jump for cover and potentially set off more mines. He talks about his role as a Battalion Runner for K Company Headquarters, and about the time a German prisoner of war thought he was a Chinese soldier. He also describes cooking on the front lines, in which he used to gather vegetables and cook Okazu using his helmet.
