Army Private Chen and Marines Lance Corporal Lew

The story of the October 11 suicide of Chinatown NYC Army infantryman Danny Chen in Afghanistan concerns me in several ways, as a Taiwanese American and an enlisted Army veteran. Chen's suicide came in the wake of the April 2011 suicide in Afghanistan of Californian Marines Lance Corporal Harry Lew. The angry reactions to both suicides in the Chinese American community has been expected and understandable. Read this insightful reaction by West Point graduate and former Army infantry captain Tim Hsia.

More personal reaction later.
