Standing in the shadow of the McGehee water tower and beneath an American flag, actor George Takei returns to celebrate five years of the World War II Japanese American Internment Museum.

Takei spoke to dozens outside the museum on Monday about his first trip to Arkansas as a 5-year-old child ordered to an internment camp in Rohwer during World War II.
