Stanley Akita

Stanley is assigned to K Company, 442nd RCT.

At Camp Shelby in Mississippi, there is camaraderie among the soldiers from Hawaii based on their common upbringing.

Stanley and his friends are treated well by townspeople when they visit nearby Hattiesburg, but he finds that the Southerners know very little about the nisei soldiers and Hawaii.
