 THANKING WILLIAM ``BILL'' CHIN FOR HIS SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY DURING 
                              WORLD WAR II

                                 ______
                                 

                            HON. ADAM SMITH

                             of washington

                    in the house of representatives

                        Friday, October 16, 2020

  Mr. SMITH of Washington. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor and recognize 
William Chin for his courageous service to our country during World War 
II.
  William Chin is a Chinese-American veteran who bravely accepted the 
call to protect and serve his country. He joined the U.S. Army in 
December of 1943 and served in the 93rd Cavalry Reconnaissance squadron 
in the European theater. In recognition of Chin's service, he received 
the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal and the Good Conduct 
Medal.
  For far too long, our veterans of color, including Chinese-American 
veterans, did not receive the proper recognition they deserved for 
their service. Although we will never be able to thank him enough for 
his service to our nation, we remain grateful to Bill and the many 
veterans who have so selflessly answered the call to service.
  Madam Speaker, it is with great admiration that I honor William Chin 
and all Chinese-American veterans for their distinguished service to 
our country during World War II.
