Congressional Gold Medal honoring Japanese-Americans veterans of WWII goes on national tour

The Congressional Gold Medal awarded last year to Japanese-Americans who served in World War II is going on a national tour.

An exhibition featuring the medal will open on Saturday at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

It will then travel to museums in Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Ore., Chicago and Houston over the next year.

Irene Hirano Inouye says her late husband — U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, who lost his right arm fighting with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team in Italy — saw the tour as an important way to tell others the story.

Congress last year awarded the medal collectively to those who served three Japanese-American units: the 442nd, the 100th Infantry Battalion and the Military Intelligence Service.
