Initiating the effort to overturn Shiro Kashino's court-martial

This interview was conducted at the 1998 Americans of Japanese Ancestry Veterans National Convention, held in Honolulu, Hawaii. Because of the full conference schedule, interviews conducted at the reunion were generally shorter in length than the typical Densho interview and concentrated on a single topic. Debbie McQuilken, one of the interviewers, is Shiro and Louise Kashino's daughter.
