Daniel Inouye, Senator and Decorated Japanese American Soldier World War II

In the wake of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, many Americans of Japanese descent were forced to internment camps. Despite the treatment, many Japanese Americans, the Nisei, served in 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The unit included a very young Daniel Inouye, now the late senator of Hawaii who passed in 2012. During his tour of duty, Inouye fought in the battle for the Lost Battalion. During that hard fought, bitter, two week battle in Vosges Mountains in France, he lost his arm. Inouye and the members of the 442nd suffered heavy casualties. The late senator and many members of the unit received the Purple Heart as well as other commemorations for their service.
