Asian/Pacific-Americans were among the victims and heroes of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As America's resolve led way to the current overseas contingency operations, as in wars past, many Asian/Pacific-Americans answered the call of duty to defend America by serving in the U.S. Army.


In May 2003, President Bush expressed his gratitude to Asian/Pacific-American citizens and Soldiers, proclaiming that "the values and traditions of the Asian/Pacific-American community; love of family, entrepreneurship, excellence in education, and community service have strengthened us as a nation. Generations of Asian/Pacific-Americans have proudly served our nation with honor and courage in wars and conflicts, including most recently in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Today, as in the past, their dedication and service to advancing peace in a troubled world upholds the values that make our country strong."
