I read a short story by him YEARS ago called "Go for Broke" and it detailed some of the hardships he and other Japanese Americans dealt with as he tried to join the service. CMH winner, lost an arm to a rifle grenade, and long term senator from HI.

He's been in that seat since HI became a state. No one else has ever occupied it.
