On Sunday, May 15, 2022, we attended our longtime partner’s, Lao Veterans of American, event, “Hmong Veteran’s Memorial Day.” This was an event where the Hmong veterans who fiught in the Vietnam War were honored. We are truly blessed to have been in such a resilient and empowering space. We appreciate our Hmong veterans and all that they have done for this community and the one back in Souhteast Asia.
At the event, we also heard some encouraging words from Hmong veterans, themselves, and community members such as Keng Yang/Nattaphone Suepsakwong, Pao Yang, Dao Lor, and Blong Xiong. We also had the chance to speak!
