Two Japanese American Soldiers, Two Best Friends, And a Crossroad


The Generation of the American Heroes

My grandfather,Kay Kei Kusumi was born on April 28, 1924, in Auburn, Washington to Mr. Fukunosuke and Mrs. Hide Kusumi. He was the eldest son of a family of six. To his parents and family's unknowing, a hero was born. As a child, due to his opposition to whatever his parents told him he was sent to work on a family friend's farm, the Toguri's, which was the family of the famous Iva Toguri D' Aquino, Tokyo Rose.
