Fun facts about Daniel Inouye

During World War II, Daniel Inouye was seriously wounded in Italy but disregarded his own personal safety and led his platoon to successfully defeat Axis soldiers. When he returned home, he later was elected to represent Hawaii as a Democratic congressman and later a senator. In 2000, Inouye along with 21 other Asian-American World War II veterans received the Medal of Honor as it was discovered that prejudiced officials gave them lesser honors in the 1940’s.
