In May 2013, the Governor of the State of Illinois issued a Proclamation honoring General Mukoyama as the State of Illinois Veteran of the Month for his commitment and contributions to veterans and their families. In October 2013, Mukoyama was included in the inaugural class inducted into the University of Illinois Army ROTC Hall of Fame. General Mukoyama has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in America since 1994.
