Two Lives in Times of War
Stanley Hayami and Takashi Hoshizaki came of age during the early 1940s, in the midst of World War II. 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. The U.S. government, which had imprisoned Hayami and Hoshizaki for looking like the enemy, was now asking the youths to join the very army that was guarding them at Heart Mountain.
