Asian American Politician Explains Why He Showed Scars

When an Ohio politician revealed scars of military service, it struck a nerve with many Asian Americans who also say their patriotism is constantly questioned. Lee Wong, a trustee in West Chester Township, Ohio, was moved to speak up about the rise in violence reported against the AAPI community at a meeting. “First it was fine,” Wong tells Inside Edition Digital, “and then the last couple of years, I noticed there was jokes and all that.” Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.

    My Grampa is Vietnamese, he worked with the US Army and The Agency during nam as a commo Sgt, doing translations and going undercover for intel. He was captured and did 5 years as a POW before escaping. He got promoted and ETS’d as a Commander some time after. He was able to bring the family over to the states due to time in service. Everyone just thinks he was some refugee but I think he paid his dues to be here. In 2017 I finished my 6 years in the US Army. 🤘🏽

    Many times I drove past the water fountains at Stonecrest Shopping Center on Rea Rd thinking how cool it would be to practice my sticking fighting workout against such a magnificent backdrop, but always opted out because I didn’t want to draw attention to myself. I was worried some outdoor diner might take offense & the management would ask me to leave. After these last couple of weeks hearing about the numerous racists comments directed at my Asian brethren & sisters about going back where they belong, I went ahead put on my earpods, set my youtube app to Franki Vali’s “Walk like a Man” & did my stick practice alongside those beautiful fountains. Nobody approached me to tell me to go away. People sat at their tables & kept to themselves. I wasn’t bothering anyone & I was able to enjoy my workout being left alone. Even though I am still cautious around all people, I think most nonAsians don’t have a problem with the racist evil ones.
