Word War 2 ended 70 years ago, and as more time passes, there are fewer and fewer people left who remember the era first hand. Sam Mihara is a survivor of the Heart Mountain Relocation Center, a Japanese Internment Camp located between Cody and Powell.

He sat down with Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard to talk about how, after staying away from Wyoming for more than 40 years, he was able to come back.
