Description Transcript (typescript, 44 pages) of an interview on June 28, 1984, by Leslie Kelen of Saige Aramaki, a Japanese American born at Price, Utah. Mr. Aramaki (b. 1918) recounts his genealogy, and recalls his childhood in Carbon County, Utah. He was drafted into the army in the Spring of 1941. After Pearl Harbor he was demoted and transferred out of his unit, which was scheduled to be shipped to Europe. He was sent to Japanese language school at Camp Savage in Minnesota. He was sent to Japan after the war. In his twenty-two years in the army Mr. Aramki served in Japan, Korea, and various bases within the continental United States.
