Earlier this year, the United States Congress awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to Chinese Americans who served during World War II. Leading the drive for the Chinese veterans was Hawaii’s former Adjutant General, Maj Gen Robert G.F. Lee. These are the same medals awarded to Japanese Americans in 2011. 

In the linked video, local television reporter Pamela Young reports on the medal and highlights several awardees. One of the awardees, George G.W. Lee, was a fighter pilot who served with the famous Flying Tigers squadron.

There is a Hawaii Air National Guard connection – Keith Lee. Watch the video here
