Reflections and Observations

Takejiro Higa

"I'm very glad of one thing. Although I was involved in the Leyte invasion and Okinawa invasion from the beginning, I never fired one shot out of my carbine against anybody. I was able to discharge my obligation as citizen soldier by use of a mega horn, notebook, and my mouth.

My only regret is this. If the people that hiding in the cave believed in us nisei a little bit more, perhaps we could have saved more."
