The students, from NYC high schools including Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, and Hunter College HS, along with other CACAGNY volunteers, helped CACAGNY gather over 1,200 signatures in support of the Chinese-American World War II Veteran Congressional Gold Medal Act (S.1050 and HR 2358).
American Legion Post 1291 invited CACAGNY and its student volunteers to join the Post's Thanksgiving Feast on November 19. The students had the privilege to meet Post Commander Kenneth Wong, prior Post Commander Mimi Wang, and Commander of Sons of American Legion Corky Lee, the well-known photographer and himself a CACAGNY member. The students had the very special honor to meet Post Chairman and WWII Flying Tigers Veteran Peter Woo.
At the Thanksgiving Feast, CACAGNY and Post 1291 recognized the students in the project, and CACAGNY and its volunteers gratefully thanked the Chinese Americans who served with such inspiring patriotism in WW II.
