Most Honorable Son


Availability: Available

This NET documentary tells of one man's remarkable journey through World War Two, while providing context to two seemingly disparate histories - the US air war and the Japanese-American experience.


After the Pearl Harbor attack, a Nebraska farmer named Ben Kuroki volunteered for the U.S. Army Air Corps. He would become the first Japanese-American war hero, surviving 58 missions as an aerial gunner over Europe, North Africa and Japan. Between his tours of duty he would find himself at the center of controversy - a lone spokesman against the racism faced by the thousands of Japanese-Americans sent to internment camps.
