The Marksmanship Center was dedicated on February 2, 2007. It features sixteen firing positions for marksmanship training, weapons qualifications and competitions. Constructed at a cost of $2.8 million, it is named for Daniel K. Inouye, U. S. Senator from Hawaii (1962- ). Senator Inouye worked in cooperation with Senator Ernest F. Hollings (Citadel Class of 1942) to secure $15 million in federal money for construction of the new Padgett Thomas Barracks. Inouye is a veteran of the famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team, comprised of Japanese American soldiers, who fought with distinction in the 5th Army and later the 15th Army Group in Italy under General Mark W. Clark. Inouye was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. (Source: MAJ Steven Smith, "Inouye Hall Marksmanship Center Dedicated,"The Brigadier, February 16, 2007, p. 1)
