Two U.S. Military Assistance Advisory Group to ROC, Lt. Col. Medendorp, and Lt. Col. Lynn, sacrificed at Kinmen island due to the bombardment caused by Mainland China on September 3rd, 1954. According to two American families’ decision which is willing to share the honor with Taiwan and U.S., AIT displayed defending Taiwan medals dedicated by former President Ma in 2016 and held a ceremony of unveiling of the defending Taiwan medals on September 2nd, 2020.

It is my great privilege to co-host this ceremony with AIT on behalf of the VAC. Taiwan went through the First and Second Taiwan Strait Crisis with the support of the U.S. Besides, because of the ROC military’s arduous sacrifice and contribution, Taiwan became a peace defender of East Asia. Veterans Affairs Council has always dedicated to making a good relationship with U.S. Veterans organizations. May long-lasting friendship between our two countries and the U.S. will continue to support Taiwan and create mutual benefit and prosperity. Minister Feng mentioned above.
