Vice Minister Lu, Senior inspector Felix Wang and coordinator Marco Chen attended 2018 VFW convention in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. during July 20th to 29th.

    More than 5,000 members and guests attended the Joint opening ceremony, where Vice Minister Lu, representing Minister Chiu, paid tribute to VFW and all the distinguished guests on the spot, and he also thanked VFW for passing the resolutions in favor of Taiwan and supporting R.O.C. for more than 60 years.

Vice Minister Lu awarded Medal of Honor, first class, of VAC, R.O.C. on behalf of Minister Chiu, to Commander-in-Chief Harman, for his dedication in VA affairs where he upholds international justice, safeguards international status of the R.O.C., and improves welfare of the veterans.

VFW is the oldest and the second largest veteran organization in the U.S.  It passes resolutions including urging the U.S. to strictly adhere to the Taiwan Relations Act by approving the sale of state-of-the-art military equipment, weapons and technology, supporting the admission of the Republic of China into the United Nations, and affording the President of Taiwan the same respect and privileges due other visiting Heads of State.

Vice Minister Lu also visited the incumbent presidents and important members of Missouri Overseas Association and Dallas Overseas Association after the VFW convention. He hosted a banquet to thank their contribution in dedicating to unofficial diplomacy and integrating the morale and patriotism among the veterans immigrants.

All felt grateful for Vice Minister Lu’s visiting and hoped they can keep improving welfare of overseas comrades and fighting for a larger international living space for our country.
