Alfred Tsang, USAFR WWII, DC, 15 Jul

This is the final Itinerary for the Patriot Guard Mission to honor LTC Alfred K. B. Tsang, USAFR, Ret., WWII, who passed away on March 10, 2010, surrounded by his family.  He was 86.  We have been invited to stand in honor of another member of the greatest generation on Thursday, July 15, 2010.  Services will take place in Washington, DC, with interment following at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) at approximately 1100 hrs.

LTC Tsang was born in New York City and spent the first 14 years of his life with his family in China.  His family returned to the United States at the onset of WWII.  As soon as he was old enough, he joined the USAAF and served as a navigator on the B29 until the end of the war.  At the end of the war he joined the USAFR where he eventually retired.  He remained active throughout his life attending WWII USAF bomb group reunions.

LTC Tsang had a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Clarkson University and in his late forties earned a law degree from Indiana University.  He worked in the Indiana Attorney General’s Office as the Deputy Attorney General when he retired from public service for the second time.

Even into retirement he continued to provide pro-bono work for many immigrants and in his early eighties ran for his local School Board.  He was an advocate for peace and sponsored high school essay contests, and was personally involved with many writing projects including a play, film script and taking the oral history of WWII veterans.

He led a full life and provided valued support to his family and served our nation with distinction and honor.
