Best Answer

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.

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