Most Honorable Son (DVD)
Most Honorable Son is an hour-long documentary that explores the personal odyssey of Ben Kuroki, Nebraska-born Nisei whose sense of shame as a Japanese American over the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and sense of loyalty to his country as a native-born American drove him to enlist to fight the Axis powers. This moving story of the only Japanese American air war hero during WWII, is told through rare and little-seen footage, as well as emotional recollections from Kuroki and his fellow airmen of the 8th and 20th Army Air Forces. The film follows Kuroki from his childhood through his distinguished military career and on to his long-overdue honoring with the Distinguished Service Medal in an August 2005 ceremony. Running time: 60 min.
