Without question, U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, a Japanese-American, ranks as one of this country’s greatest heroes. He died Dec. 17 at age 88. His service to this country was extraordinary.

He set out to prove his allegiance to this country right after Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese and this country entered World War II. As an officer, he fought in Italy with a Japanese-American unit. He was seriously wounded, lost an arm, and for his heroic actions against the Germans, he was awarded the Medal of Honor, America’s highest award for valor.
