Farewell Senator Dan Inouye - 442nd Reg Combat Team
#1

Our country has suffered a great loss with the passing of Senator Daniel Inouye this week. As a decorated hero of WWII, Inouye continued to honor his country & native Hawaii by becoming the first Japanese-American to serve in Congress by winning Hawaii’s first US election in 1959. His political career then took him to the Senate where he held a seat since 1963.

 

This clip features Daniel Inouye being elected to Congress in Hawaii's first election after statehood in 1959.

When I was trying to get information regarding my father, I looked to his office for help. They were really great and I received a phone call within several days. I'll never forget that. Who better to go than a WWII veteran who could understand your plight!

 

RIP senator! You were a great man!
