The Nation finally recognized the contributions of our Chinese-American Veterans of World War II in December of 2018. 

Congress passed and the President signed the Chinese-American World War II Veteran Congressional Gold Medal Act honoring the approximately 20,000 Chinese-Americans, or about 22 percent of their adult male population, that willingly served during the war. Of those, more than 90 percent served in the Army. The Army Heritage Center Foundation will honor and recognize their service at its 12th Annual Membership and Recognition Dinner on Nov. 2.
