Staff Sgt. Jeong S. Wing stands besides his A-20 Havoc light
bomber in Great Britain, 1944. Wing, aptly named, was the
only Chinese-born aerial gunner in the 9th USAAF. He was
a veteran of 29 missions at the time this photo was taken.
Born in Canton, China in 1922, Wing came to America at age 4,
and was raised in Bakersfield, California.
