Military Enlistment

Takejiro Higa

Having left Okinawa to avoid conscription, Takejiro is a reluctant volunteer. But, fearing that his loyalty may be doubted and that he may be sent to Sand Island Detention Camp, he enlists.

He is called for the Military Intelligence Service (MIS). Takejiro worries he will be stationed in the Pacific where he may encounter relatives and friends.

In response to their sister's pleas to the War Department, Takejiro and Warren are assigned to the same unit.
