Under capture by Japanese

Transcript
I was a young man, I just turned 21. I was 197 the day I was taken prisoner of war, I think I weighed 197. My first experience and one of my first things, a Japanese said something to me and I hit him and big fellow and young and I hit him very, very hard but they all, five or six of them turned to me and that's the worst trimming, I got an awful trimming from them. But that was our first experience, my first experience with what was headed for.
