During World War II he served with the famous 442nd Regimental Combat Team, with whom he earned two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and numerous other commendations. In 2000, Inouye was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by then-President Bill Clinton for his heroism in Italy during World War II.
