You know, I don't believe anyone ever made a movie about them. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii lost an arm serving the 442/100 Infantry Battalion Regimental Combat Team. He returned to Hawaii, earned a law degree and became the first Japanese-American to serve in the House, and the first Japanese-American to serve in the Senate. At the time of his death, he was the longest serving Senator in the nation. There was an interview of him on 60 Minutes
, and he told the story of his despair after he lost his arm. But one of the nurses asked him if he had ever heard the piano concerto for the left hand by Maurice Ravel. The Austrian pianist Paul Wittgenstein (brother of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein) has lost his right arm in the Great War, and he commission the piece by Ravel. Inouye said that when he learned to play that, it gave him new hope, and he never looked back.
The 442nd Infantry Regiment was raised exclusively from volunteers in the prison camps in the mainland United States, and 100th Infantry Battalion was raised exclusively from volunteers from Hawaii. They were combined to form a regimental combat team, which was like a miniature division, with its own artillery, heavy weapons, transport and supply units. They suffered in excess of 350% casualties in the war, and as CI has pointed out, they were the most decorated unit in the army.
A television movie was made about the Tuskegee airmen. They were African-Americans who had not initially been allowed to take flight training in the Army Air Corps. The military and Federal government were segregated, thanks to Woodrow Wilson. But when they deployed overseas (not until 1943) they quickly developed a reputation for doggedly defending the bombers they escorted. Only one of them became an ace (meaning he had five confirmed kills). U.S. Army Air corps policy was tougher than that of other air forces, but that wasn't the only reason they had few "kills." They didn't go whoring after kills. If a Bf109 or FW190 broke off contact, instead of chasing them, they flew back to the bomber formation. Their job was to escort those bombers, and they took that job very seriously.
