In this video, Bob Uragami speaks about the drum that was used by his Boy Scout troop while incarcerated at Amache. The drum can also be seen in one of the images in the scrapbook. As you watch this video, consider what Mr. Uragami says about the flags depicted on the drum.

When he refers to the “meatball,” he is using a nickname for the Japanese flag, which has one large circle on it.

  • How does the story about the flags reflect the identity of this group of Boy Scouts?
  • How does the story about the burial suit reflect the identity of Mr. Uragami’s father?
