SHADES OF ISSHINRYU

Cutting potatoes

MESS PHOTO 1957 (Harry G. Smith at right)

Things that had to be done to have the complete day off. This way I had the unique opportunity to train with Sensei at daylight. Worked at night, 7pm to 4am seven days a week. Cut more potatoes than there are ants in the world.

Sgt. Hall made this possible. He pulled strings for me, especially at the time I was a lineman, strung high voltage wires through the area. When typhoons hit the mess hall work ceased and I had to string wire until electric was back on.

It was I who got one single light bulb in the Agena dojo at no cost to Sensei.
