Seniors by the Wayside
Our speaker will be Yoneichi “Bill” Uyeda, who will share his own historical experience with us. As a member of the World War II Oral History Club, Bill will speak about Japanese-Americans during World War II. He will share his experience as an internee in a detention camp.
Bill Uyeda, now 96 years of age, resides at Homestead Village. He was interned with other Japanese-Americans in an American detention camp during WWII. He was then released to serve as a Civil Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Army occupation of Japan after the War. Mr. Uyeda later graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a degree in physics. He was employed by RCA, retiring in 1985, and has lived in Lancaster for almost 70 years.
We meet at 12 noon in the Atrium with the program to start at or about 12:30 PM. Bring your bag lunches (we provide the beverages) and join us to welcome our guest and enjoy another interesting presentation.
