Like other teenagers of their time, the two youths were drafted into the U.S. Army, with one exception--Hayami and Hoshizaki were called to fight for democracy overseas while they and their families languished in American-style concentration camps.
Hayami and Hoshizaki, both Southern California natives, received their draft notices while incarcerated at the Heart Mountain War Relocation Authority camp, near Cody, Wyoming.
