Named in honor of Staff Sergeant Robert T. Kuroda, 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

On 20 October 1944, during the battle of Bruyeres, France, Sergeant Kuroda led his squad in an attack against a strongly defended enemy position. He deployed his squad to cover his advance and personally destroyed two enemy gun positions before being struck by an enemy bullet. Sergeant Kuroda was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

Fort DeRussy was the home of the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Infantry Regiment. Kuroda Field honors the memory of those brave soldiers.
