Daniel Inouye, War Hero and U.S. Senator

Portrait of Senator Daniel Inouye
Senator Daniel Inouye

Daniel Inouye was born on September 7, 1924. While he was in WWII, he tragically lost one of his arms.  Even though he lost one of his arms, he still won the medal of honor.

Right now, Daniel Inouye is now serving as the senior senator of Hawaii. If I had been in his place when he lost his arm in war, it would have been so hard for me.

I think that he showed a ton of perseverance.
