LOS ANGELES —DECEMBER 17, 2012—Japanese American National Museum’s statement on the passing of U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye:
“The Japanese American community is deeply saddened by this loss,” said Dr. G.W. (Greg) Kimura, President and CEO of the Japanese American National Museum. “Senator Daniel K. Inouye is irreplaceable. He embodies the very best of our community and our nation. He fought with valor and distinction on the battlefield and he was a tireless supporter of civil rights and social justice for all Americans. His legacy will live on in the many lives and institutions he touched, like the National Museum, and he will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his wife, Irene Hirano Inouye, and their family during this difficult time.”
