Flowers left for Daniel Inouye
This man is "A true American Hero" a thousand times over in every sense of the word. A hero in WWII, he's wounded 3 times, to include getting his arm shot off with a grenade still clinched in his hand. He took the grenade from his severed hand and threw it at the enemy. This mind you was after he had already been shot in the stomach. He and his men that he led captured the 3 machine gun nests and neutralized them. After the war he stayed in the Army until 1947 with one arm mind you and then was confronted with prejudice and hate at times towards his racial heritage of Japanese-American. This did not phase him and he went on to being elected US Senator from his Hawaiian state's birth in 1959 until his death. Amazing man, just amazing. He was what I call "The Human Terminator". He just could not be put down. For 55 years he did not get the award he deserved - The Medal of Honor. Aloha Daniel.
