Life at Camp Shelby

Ronald Oba

Ronald rarely leaves the barracks but on one occasion he experiences local hospitality at a rural home. There he is treated to Southern fried chicken.

On furlough, he travels to Ohio with his friend, Joseph Burger, who invites him to the family home. They try to attend a dance held by the Knights of Columbus. Still in his army uniform, Ronald is rejected at the door for being a “Jap.”
