Daniel Inouye of Hawaii had to petition the U.S. government to serve in the Army during World War II after he and other Japanese-Americans were declared enemy aliens after Pearl Harbor. He lost his right arm during an attack on a German machine gun in April 1945. This action earned him the Medal of Honor. He went on to college and law school after the war and then to a career in politics that brought him to the Senate in 1962. Now in his ninth term, he is President Pro Tem of the Senate and continues to be an ardent supporter of veterans. (SHNS photo by Danielle Cohen) (RS) (WWII)
