APA HEROES & HISTORICAL FIGURES

BETTY ONG - The 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean declared: "Betty Ong is a true American hero." He stated that "we have to remind ourselves of exactly what it was like that day. . . wasn't just a tragedy but a triumph ... of heroes." The 5' 9" native of San Francisco's Chinatown was a victim of the terrorists and the first hero of that fateful day of September 11, 2001 where terrorist attacks killed 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC. in the greatest American catastrophe of modern times.
CHARLIE SOONG - Duke's 1st International student and Methodist minister turned wealthy businessman whose daughters married Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek
FRANCIS WAI - Captain Francis Wai (of the 34th Regiment of the 24th Infantry division under General Douglas MacArthur) was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor,: but not until 2000, after Congress had ordered a review of the war records of Asian American soldiers during WWII because of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was still being enforced. The U.S. government did not recognize Wai with the Congressional Medal of Honor until the 1999 act of Congress that mandated a review of war records of Asian American soldiers in World War II. Along with 21 other Asian Americans, Wai finally received his overdue honor in May of 2000 from former President Bill Clinton.
