GM: Well, anyway, I got drafted in '41. Went to (Camp Roberts, California).

MU: Now, I want to back up a little bit, George. You said you were in Japan for five years?

GM: '29 -- 'bout five years.

MU: Did you go to school there at that time?

GM: I went to grade school for two years and junior high for two years.

MU: So you had pretty good Japanese education there?

GM: I don't think so.

MU: You don't think so.

GM: I don't think so, 'cause I couldn't comprehend all that Japanese (kanji).

MU: All right. Now we come back to...

GM: I could talk about it.

MU: Well, you must have been pretty good from your experience anyway. So you came back from Japan and then...

GM: Went back to school.

MU: Okay.
