Cornyn Statement on the Passing of Sen. Daniel Inouye

I issued the following statement on the passing of U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI), the longest-serving sitting member of the U.S. Senate:

A member of this nation’s Greatest Generation, Sen. Inouye was a decorated veteran who received the Medal of Honor for his courageous service and bravery fighting tyranny and evil on battlefields across the globe. His decades of public service on behalf of the people of Hawaii were marked with passion, honor, and selflessness. He will truly be missed.

Members of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team were declared to be no-joke Honorary Texans by Gov John Connolly in 1963 as a result of their relieving a unit of the 36th Infantry Division surrounded by ~6000 Germans in Italy in 1944. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_Battalion_%28World_War_II%29

Texas, the 36th ID and the 36th ID veterans should have a part in his funeral.
