Description

Thomas Takemoto was part of the 1399 Engineer Construction Battalion. During World War II, the 1399 Engineer Construction Battalion's job was to construct facilities that were needed by the military -- i.e. water tanks, jungle training facilities. While serving in the military, Thomas realized that there was little team work involved, and rather everyone was looking out for themselves. He describes how the First Sergeant of his company always gave him a hard time. After being discharged, he joined different veteran organizations.
