Senator Daniel Inouye apparently used to visit the Japanese American War Memorial in Washington, DC often. The volunteer caretaker of the Memorial recalls seeing the late Senator there on several occasions.
William J. Jeter told Human Events “I tried to get a read on him, to me he seemed a very deep and thoughtful man,” he said.
A visitor to the memorial said about Senator Inouye, “He was very special to us,” Tsurumi Hamasu said.
“I think he became a senator before we were born, so he was our senator for all of our lives,” she said.
