Vice Minister Wu attended the 2022 Convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A., from July 14 to 25, 2022. He participated in the National Security and Foreign Affairs committee meeting as a distinguished guest and delivered a speech at the Joint Opening Session. Vice Minister Wu thanked the VFW for passing the resolutions supporting the ROC and mentioned the VAC will continue to encourage the sharing and exchange the affairs related to veterans. He also hoped we could work together to enhance veterans’ welfare further.

VFW, the first established veteran's organization in U.S.A., is the second largest veteran organization in America. The VAC established the brotherhood relation with VFW in 1980 and continued the exchange for over 60 years. The VAC could not participate in the national convention due to the rampage of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. Instead, Minister Feng conveyed his sincere gratitude through the prerecorded video. It is our first time to attend the VFW National Convention after the pandemic.

After participating in the Convention, Vice Minister Wu went to Fort Benning Main Post Cemetery in Georgia to mourn our five air force martyrs who died during training and were buried in a foreign land 80 years ago. He said that R.O.C. would never forget the people who died for their country on battlefield.  

Vice Minister Wu also visited the ROC Overseas Associations in Huston, Atlanta, and Dallas to express his gratitude for their contribution to diplomacy. He stated that the government’s position in caring for overseas veterans would never change and hoped the associations could support the government in return.
