"Crime Alert: 我家在Dunn Loring Gallows 和 Oak Street附近。昨天下午我们出去时,有两个黑人从后院的厨房窗子撬开进来,把家里的柜子都撬开,最后拿走了现金和一些珠宝。我老公出去不久就回来,刚好和小偷撞上,大吼了一声,两小偷从后院卷款逃了。我们叫了警察,后来抓到了其中一个嫌疑犯。现在正在调查。失去钱财是小事,幸好人没事。如果当时小孩留在家,后果不堪设想。[Scream]现在很多歹徒盯着亚裔抢,想起来都后怕。大家要警慎小心些。经过这一次,开始考虑家里安装安全警报装置,大家用什么中意的,请推荐一下。谢谢。"




Chinese American WWII Veterans and the Congressional Gold Medal

Hello. My name is Samantha Cheng. I am working with the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, the oldest Chinese American Civil Rights organization in the country, to craft a bill for Congress asking for them to recognize and honor the Chinese Americans who served in WWII on behalf of the United States. This is not an easy task as many of these men have passed away. If you know of a Chinese American WWII veteran or their family, email me at e.samantha.cheng@gmail.com. A database is being created, from scratch, of the 13,000 Chinese Americans who served. Many of the WWII military records stored at the National Archives in St. Louis were destroyed in a fire. Any help you can provide would be tremendous. Please share this missive on your social media platforms for this effort truly needs to help of everyone. Thanks.

Only WWII veterans of Chinese American descent would be eligible. There is not official website as the project is just starting. I am looking to create a Dbase with the following information needed:

1. Name
2. Branch of service
2a. Unit
3. Enlisted or drafted
4. City in which one was enlisted or drafted
5. Dates of service
6. Rank when discharged 
7. Copy of his discharge papers, if available.

Thanks.
