Washington, D.C. - Senator Daniel K. Inouye of Hawaii passed away today at the age of 88. Senator Inouye served in the U.S. Senate for 50 years and received the Medal of Honor and other commendations for his service in World War II. The following statement can be attributed to Alex Nogales, President & CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition: "Senator Inouye is a true American hero. He was one of our champions in the Senate who had a history of confronting injustice and discrimination against people from all walks of life. He represented the people of the state of Hawaii admirably for more than half a century. While he will be surely missed, his legacy will endure and his service to this country is an inspiration to us all."
