He knew that the United States would attack using overwhelming force. He knew there would be no re-supply or reinforcement from the Japanese homeland. He knew that the typical Japanese beach defense would not be effective, as it had not been effective since early on in the war.

With relation to sociology, Shane Ortega’s agency, the freewill to change society, allowed him to push for a change in the way the U.S. military views the transgender community.
