Mr. Yamamoto's parents moved to Los Angeles when he was an infant. He spent his childhood in Los Angeles and was a senior in high school when Pearl Harbor was bombed. He recalls the confusion surrounding the forced evacuation process and the time he spent at the Pomona Assembly Center. He describes the living conditions in the Pomona Assembly Center and recollects the conditions during the train ride from Pomona to Heart Mountain. He describes his first impressions and the daily living environment of the Heart Mountain Internment Camp. Topics covered in this interview include: his internment in Wyoming, the organization of camp living spaces, its education system, and recreation programs. He also comments on internal camp security measures, the quality of food, and the much needed diversion of gardening and farming. Mr. Yamamoto moved to Utah under a government relocation program where he studied the leather cutting trade and met his wife. He later moved to Chicago and was subsequently drafted into the US Army. He was transferred to a base in Monterey, Calif. where he completed his service in Military Intelligence. He discusses the differences in how he was treated as a minority in different parts of the United States. After demobilization, Mr. Yamamoto returned to Los Angeles for a time before finally settling in Santa Ana, Calif. in 1959. He recounts his experiences of living in ethnically mixed neighborhoods absent the overt racial prejudice he had experienced during the war. He comments on the need for Asian Americans to become more involved in politics and civil governance
