Ming Sun

On Memorial Day the Coachella Valley Veterans For Peace chapter would like to place a flower wreath at the statue of Army soldier Ming Sun.

Ming was a graduate of Cathedral City High School. He was killed in the Iraq war. VFP held a memorial service at the statue a couple of years ago. Ming's father, David owns a restaurant in Palm Springs. He has said he supports peace.

A beautiful life-size bronze statue is in a park off Date Palm Drive. Cachet Fiore has reduced the cost of the wreath on a tripod stand in half to $75.

If you can make a donation please e-mail tomswann@earthlink.net.  Checks should be made payable to VFP and mailed to: PO Box 499 Rancho Mirage CA 92270.
