Bks UnsungHeroes Cvr r72The story of Chinese American veterans and their contributions in World War II and the path toward recognition as told by the sons/daughters/grandchildren of these veterans.  This collection of writings is edited by regular China Insight contributor retired Major General William Chen.

Largely forgotten, ignored, and neither recognized nor honored, the story of these veterans has to be told so future generations can reflect upon the contributions of our WWII veterans; and to understand, appreciate, and preserve their legacies for the generations to come.  

The book includes contributors from California, Oregon, Colorado, New York and Massachusetts.  Chapters 1-5 should be of interest to all, while chapters 6 and 7 recognize veterans from New England and veterans whose next of kin reside in New England.  Orders for the book are taken until Oct. 1, 2020.
