Sam Mihara is a second generation Japanese American who was born and raised in San Francisco. When World War II broke out, the United States government forced Sam, at age 9, and his family to move to an internment camp, between Cody and Powell, Wyoming. This was the Heart Mountain Relocation Camp, where they lived for three years. Now, in retirement, Sam enjoys publicly speaking about what he and his family experienced during WW II. His program is informative and entertaining complete with power point and video accompaniments.
