张计发 Zhang Jifa fought the Japanese invaders, then fought the yanks in Korea at Battle of Triangle Hill (上甘岭). Wounded 8 times, awarded 6 times. Died today aged 95.

电影《上甘岭》连长张忠发原型、原志愿军第15军45师135团7连连长张计发,6月15日在河南信阳逝世,享年95岁。上甘岭战役,载入世界战争史册的战役,43天内,3.7平方公里土地上,敌我双方投入兵力数十万人,倾泻炮弹百万余发,上万中国军人用血肉之躯扛住了敌人的狂轰乱炸,筑起了一座无法撼动的丰碑!

On the one hand I admired him as a Chinese battling racism. On the other I loath him for fighting against China in Korea.

By Dr. Raymond Douglas Chong (Zhang Weiming)

Ronald Chin Won is a pioneer aviator who, against all odds, overcame racism to become a military and commercial pilot for the Air Force and Pan Am in 1939. As a trailblazer in the Chinese American community, he served in three wars and became both an accomplished military and commercial aviator until 1985.

Ronald was born on May 20, 1925, at Omaha – Gateway of the West in Nebraska. Jok Chin, his father, was a successful merchant from Toishan with various businesses including the famous King Fong Café in downtown Omaha.
