Boxer Statement on the Passing of Senator Daniel Inouye  

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) issued the following statement today on the passing of Senator Daniel Inouye:

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my dear friend and colleague, Senator Daniel Inouye. I will miss his sonorous voice, his big heart, his self-effacing manner, his integrity and his patriotism.

“Over the years, I worked closely on many issues with Senator Inouye, including creating the first-ever Comprehensive Combat Casualty Care Center in San Diego. Our most severely wounded military men and women would not have this state-of-the-art healing facility without his help.

“We will never be able to replace this remarkable American, who personified the meaning of love of country.”
