Memorial Day 2018: Fighting for the Dream

Ms. V. Moy at the American Legion Post 1291 last week. 

Today Victoria Moy read an excerpt from her book "Fighting for the Dream."


Fighting for the Dream, by Victoria Moy, is a collection of oral histories of 40 Chinese American men and women—ages 24 to 94—who served in wars from World War II to conflicts in Afghanistan. These individuals defied boundaries, went against their cultural grain, and changed history. Through their personal stories, we see a greater tapestry that is the story of America in the last hundred years, from the lens of Chinese Americans who served.
