Another Great Japanese-American Has Left Us

My US Champion Mum and other Shiba Inus in the USA are not the only great Japanese-Americans there are. Not everyone are dogs, there are humans as well. One of these left us yesterday: US Senator Daniel Inouye.

Senator Inouye had been a member of Congress since Hawaii was admitted as a State in the Union in 1959, and has served as Senator since 1963. He was a war veteran, decorated with the Medal of Honor, the highest US military medal, since he destroyed a Nazi bunker in Italy during the Second World War, losing an arm in the process.

Our thoughts go to the late Senator's family.
