My mother, Rebecca Chan (Mrs. Chung) worked as a nurse in both Flying Tigers and the subsequent 14th US Army Air Force in Kunming, China, in 1942-43. She was granted US veteran status (Honorable Discharge) from US Army in a ceremony held in the office of Congresswoman Hochul in Buffalo, NY, on Jan. 17, 2012.  Unfortunately, she passed away on Dec. 7, 2011.  I, her daughter, received the honor in the ceremony.  Now that her DD214 is available, I would like to know if it is possible to have her listed as a member of your organization.  Below are the news links about my mother.

My mother's 240-page autobiography "Piloted to Serve" will be published in English in March 2012.  The Chinese version has been published days prior to her death.  Anyone interested in either version is welcome to contact me at ddlchung@163.com.
