History

Colonel, Retired Kenneth P. Fulton, Dental Corps

Dental Clinic Number One on Fort Lewis was memorialized on March 14, 1980, in honor of Colonel Kenneth P. Fulton.

Kenneth Fulton was born in Port Townsend, Washington, on March 11, 1898. Upon graduation from the North Pacific College of Dentistry in Oregon, with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD), he entered the United States Army on July 15, 1925. His assignments exposed him to an ever increasing level of responsibility ranging over the years from assignments as Dental Officer, Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in 1925, to that of the Post Dental Surgeon at Fort Lewis during 1950-1953 and subsequent assignments as the Sixth Army Dental Surgeon from 1953 until his retirement on August 14, 1957.

Colonel Fulton developed the plans for the former Dental Clinic Number One while serving as Post Dental Surgeon at Fort Lewis in 1950. When it was dedicated on August 14, 1957, as Dental Clinic Number One, the Fulton Dental Clinic was a pioneer in clinic design for that period. The 28-chair, ranch-style building was the Army’s first separate, permanent dental clinic west of the Mississippi. Fulton Dental Clinic was equipped with the most up-to-date dental equipment and was admirably suited for its former provision of general dentistry, endodontic, periodontic, prosthetic and surgical support more than 6,000 active duty soldiers.

The original Fulton Dental Clinic was closed in December 2001; the building relinquished to the Fort Lewis Directorate of Public Works and Engineering and served as the Headquarters for 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division (L) (Stryker).

From March 2006 to May of 2010 a modular facility temporarily housed the “Fulton Dental Clinic” during construction of a brand new facility that would later be certified by the Leadership Energy and Environmental Design as a “Gold” standard building, which is the first Army Medicine facility to achieve that rating. In May 2010 the new dental clinic opened after an additional four treatment rooms and x-ray room were added. An official ribbon cutting ceremony dedicating the Winder Family Medical Clinic and rededicating the state-of-the-art 28-chair Fulton Dental Clinic was held on July 27, 2011, that once again recognized the clinic and continued to honor Colonel Kenneth P. Fulton.

 History

The Okubo Family Medical and Dental Complex is named after Technician Fifth Grade James K. Okubo, a combat medic assigned to the 442nd Combat Regimental Team that saw heavy combat in Europe during World War II.

Okubo distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action in a French forest close to the German border on October 28, 29 and November 4, 1944 in which he treated and saved more than 25 men. He ran 75 yards under a hail of machine-gun fire to a tank, where a badly wounded soldier was trapped and climbed inside the tank, lifted the man onto his back and carried him to safety. Okubo dragged himself by his elbows hundreds of yards through that same forest to save other wounded comrades in K Company of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. For his actions, Okubo was awarded the Silver Star.

Okubo, a Washington state native and a son of a restaurateur, was born in Anacortes and raised in Bellingham, where he played high-school football. He was a Nisei, which means that he was a second generation Japanese-American.

In February 1942, an executive order directed the government to confine Japanese Americans in internment camps scattered throughout the West. Okubo and his family were sent first to Tule Lake, Calif., then to Heart Mountain, Wyo. A year later, the government reversed its policy and allowed Japanese Americans to enlist in the military. Okubo, his two brothers and two cousins volunteered and were assigned to the all-Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The unit earned more than 18,000 individual medals and was the most decorated unit in World War II.

Okubo survived the war, later moving to Michigan and becoming a dentist. Tragically, he was killed in a car accident on January 29, 1967. He was 47.

In 1996, Congress directed the Secretary of the Army to review service records of Asian Americans who received the Silver Star during World War II. Okubo's award was one of those reviewed and upgraded to the Medal of Honor, which was presented in a formal ceremony at the White House on June 21, 2000.

On February 21, 2002, a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony was held opening the brand new multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art family medical and dental complex with Okubo’s widow, Nobuyo Okubo in attendance.

The Okubo Medical and Dental Complex is more than 25,000 square feet in size and consists of 39 dental and medical examination and treatment rooms.
