    HYANNIS (CBS) – Kiyoshi Ota, a Purple Heart recipient who fought in Italy, France and Germany during World War II, was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in a ceremony Sunday on Cape Cod.
    Ota, 91, was a sergeant in the Army’s 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Composed of Japanese-Americans, the 442nd RCT had the motto of “Go for Broke,” and was one of the most decorated units in the war and also had one of the highest casualty rates.
