WASHINGTON, Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The gala was held at the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Washington, DC. Also honored were American and Chinese veterans of the heroic Flying Tigers led by General Claire Lee Chennault. FTHO Chairman Major General James Whitehead, Larry Jobe, President of FTHO and Nell Calloway Director of CAAM presented special commemorative awards to Anna Chennault, the wife of General Chennault, and Catherine Stevens, the wife of former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens, a former  Flying Tiger pilot.  In addition, several Flying Tiger veterans received service awards, including Frank Losonsky, Paul Crawford and Jerry Yellin.

It is through events such as this that we will continue to build on a past special relationship between the Chinese and American people for a better understanding in the future."
