Dragon Wings: The CNAC
Dear CNAC Member:
The CNAC reunion in September in San
Francisco was a huge success, thanks to Moon Chen's advance planning
and generosity. One of the elements of the success was the
appearance of so many second-generation members, sons, daughters,
nephews, and nieces of the original CNAC members. Many have
volunteered to take over the workload of keeping the organization
The pride that we have all felt in our
accomplishments during the war, and our willingness to share and
communicate it to our families, now bears fruit as shown by the
interest, concern, and participation by so many of the younger
people. The respect that they show for those of us who are getting
on, and the shared bond they have with each other at the convention
was truly impressive.
At the reunion, Art Lindgren of Monumental
Productions, presented us with a revised documentary, Dragon Wings
Episode II 1939-1945. The documentary has evolved into three
episdoes, Early Years, War Years, and After the War.
Monumental is finishing Episode II and
preparing a video cover. So much material has been gathered by them
from interviews and photographs, that Monumental will make available
a larger volume of historical material to each one of you that take
