Sijan Chapter Members,
The Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance has notified the Chapter of Eligibility for U.S.-R.O.C. Mutual Defense Commemorative Badge. The government of Taiwan has produced the “U.S.-R.O.C. Mutual Defense Commemorative Badge” to express their appreciation for the contribution to maintain the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, made by all American soldiers who served in Taiwan during the period of 1955-1979. They are looking for any former Army soldier in Colorado who meets that requirement so they may present the award to them, and have asked me to help get the word out. Can you please help by spreading the attached out to your networks?
From 1955 to 1979, a Mutual Defense Treaty was established between the United States of America and the Republic of China (ROC), which secured Taiwan from invasion in the aftermath of the Chinese Civil war.
The Ministry of National Defense of the Republic of China has produced the “U.S.-R.O.C. Mutual Defense Commemorative Badge” to express the appreciation for the contribution to maintain the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, made by all American soldiers who served in Taiwan during that period.
In addition, the Ministry also produced “Honor Medal for 823 Bombardment” for those who helped Taiwan defend itself during the 1958 Taiwan Strait Crisis.
On behalf of the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan), Mr. Jerry Chang, Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Denver would like to present these badges/medals to the American veterans who took part in providing assistance in Taiwan’s self defense.
We are more than happy to discuss the occasion to present these badges/ medals with your department/organization after we find out qualified veterans in your great state.
Please kindly share this information, and ask those qualified veterans to get in touch with Ms. Shirley Chang at email@example.com or (720)587-2949 #108.
