Describes feelings while leaving home – Vic Takemoto (OH0015)
We had to get up pretty early. I think the army trucks came by, oh, about seven–thirty, eight o’clock in the morning and picked us up. And in our case, it was… they just picked up our family and took us down to the ferry. But most everyone was already there when we got there so they must have had a lot of army trucks to round everyone up. And looked like everything was going pretty smoothly, no riots or anything. We did have some of our, our friends were down there to send us off. Some were in Seattle, they were on the overpass over Western Avenue. There was a few families that had friends up above. While we were boarding the train, they would be waving to us.
