When the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, had the chance to get out of the Japanese-American internment camps and fight in World War II, he jumped at it, eventually earning a Medal of Honor for "conspicuous gallantry" near San Terenzo, Italy, in 1942.
On June 21, 2000, Inouye was presented the Medal of Honor by President Bill Clinton for his service during World War II

(Ben Bradlee -- JFK told me that "he was all for people's solving their problems by abortion".)
Inouye was never in an internment camp. Japanese Americans (Isei and Nisei) on the mainland were sent to the camps. Japanese Americans in Hawaii were not.
