The quest to give Congressional Gold Medal to a Chinese-American Ranger of World War II 

The quest for Ranger Raymond Lee, who served with the 6th Ranger Battalion in WWII began after the discovery of military records indicating another Chinese American Ranger Veteran.  Former Pfc. Randall Ching was thought to be the sole Chinese-American Ranger veteran of World War II. William Chen, a retired major general, and active member of Chinese-American Veteran Recognition Projected located Raymond Lee Honorable discharge papers. The quest to track down Lee was no easy task, but William Chen eventually found Raymond Lee living with his daughter in NJ.

Chen is coordinating the presentation of the CGM to Lee in recognition of his position as a Chinese American World War II soldier, Lee had never received the CGM he earned as a Chinese American Veteran, and he is now eligible for a second CGM award, making him part of a select handful of people in history.
