  1. Many thanks and much admiration to Alex Chung for his commitment, sacrifice, and courage.  He has willingly endured great risk and hardship towards a difficult but worthy goal.  His example is inspiring.  A standing ovation is more than well deserved.

  2. The Town of Westport should place a plague in a public area to honor the efforts of this brave young man. He was the only young man from Westport involved in the war. He is a very special person and should be honored in a permanent way as we have done for soldiers from other wars. The Town of Norwalk has all of the WWII veterans listed on the wall of the main entrance.
