Kubo begins the interview talking about his family background, starting with his grandparents and then talking about his parents who met in the United States as his mother was a picture bride. At the age of four, he would move to Japan, to go to school and help out on the rice farm that his mother was working at. After he finished high school, he would return to the United States, where he would attend a few more months of school before starting to work on farms in California. He would receive his draft notice but defer his induction as he had to get an appendicitis, but would end up joining following Pearl Harbor.
