As a Sponsoring Partner, CHCP is proud to support a ceremony to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the end of WWII and to honor our Chinese American Veterans from the Golden State. We will listen and learn from our most senior WWII Chinese American veterans, plus currently serving and retired military personnel, as they share their personal stories and their message to future generations.

Our ceremony includes Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, Rep. Ted Lieu, Rep. Judy Chu, Governor Gavin Newsom, American Legion Cathay Post, Chinese American Citizens Alliance / Congressional Gold Medal (CGM) Project, and the premiere of Montgomery Hom’s special short film, “We Served with Pride”, which chronicles the road to the CGM.

September 2, 2020 marked the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. “The 15,000 to 20,000 men and women who served, (1 out of 5 Chinese persons in the U.S. served in WWII) became our symbols of hope and inspiration for a new frontier, a new modern Chinese American community. And so…we salute our Chinese American GI men and women who served our country.” – Montgomery Hom
