Most Honorable Son

In the early part of the last century Shosuke and Nara Kuroki migrated from Japan to the United States. They purchased a farm in Nebraska and gave birth to their children. Their children will grow up to be American children as they were raised in the great American melting pot.

When the United States entered World War Two, Mr. Kuroki told his oldest two sons, one of whom is Ben Kuroki (also Fred Kuroki), that if they wanted to join the military to fight for their nation, they should do so.

His two oldest sons joined the U.S. military. Ben Kuroki made his way to the U.S. Army Air Corps as a gunner on flying fortresses (B24 and B29). At first he was ridiculed for his Japanese ancestry, later to be nicknamed “most honorable son.”

Ben Kuroki flew the required 25 missions and could have not flown in combat for the rest of the war. However Mr. Kuroki volunteered for further combat missions. He was transferred to the Pacific Theater of the war. He was the only American of Japanese ancestry to serve in combat in the United States Army Air Forces in the Pacific theater of World War II.

Mr. Kuroki was fortunate to be educated in the USA when the American melting pot was taught. Now children are taught diversity, political correctness, where their loyalty and identity is when their heritage first, and perhaps somewhere down the road to the USA. This is the left in the USA way of attempting to Balkanize the USA. Like the title of Doctor Michael Savage’s book reads, “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.”

Mr. Kuroki was quoted as saying:

"I had to fight like hell for the right to fight for my own country"

God bless Mr. Ben Kuroki and God bless America!
