Description

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Yoshiaki Fujitani joined the Hawaii Territorial Guard, which later became the Varsity Victory Volunteers (VVV). Because his father was a Buddhist minister, he was blacklisted as a "potentially dangerous enemy alien." Yoshiaki only had a few months to spend with his father before he was shipped to Sand Island, and later to a temporary detention facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Angered by his father's removal by the United States Government, Yoshiaki resigned from the Varsity Victory Volunteers.
