I think the answer you are looking for is:

US Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, who served as a Lieutenant in the 442nd (Nisei) Regimental Combat Team in Italy. In April 1945, Lt. Inouye was hit in his abdomen by a bullet, barely missing his spine. He continued to fight until his right arm was shattered by a German rifle grenade. He lost his right arm. His Distinguished Service Cross was upgraded to a Medal of Honor on June 21, 2000.

No that doesnt work


Maybe not in that Inouye was of the Hawaiian race, not a descendant of Japanese ancestors.

Here are some members for the 442 Regimental Combat Team who had their medals upgraded to the Medal of Honor.

Kaoru Moto (Makawao, Maui, Private First Class, C Company, 100th Battalion)

Yukio Okutsu (Hilo, Hawaii, Technical sergeant, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 442nd RCT)
