Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii passed away today of respiratory complications. He was 88.

Inouye, a Democrat, came to Washington as Hawaii’s first Congressman in 1959 and was elected to the Senate  in 1962 and served for nearly half a century.

He is probably best known to most Americans for chairing the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987.

Inouye served this country with distinction during WWII losing his right arm while fighting in Tuscany. His bravery earned him the Distinguished Service Cross, the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and, in 2000, the Medal of Honor.
