Lieutenant Colonel R. Eric Udouj of U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa joined us for lunch at Mamak Malaysian Restaurant in Orlando’s Asian Town on E. Colonial Drive on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014.  Asian American Journalists Association-Florida Chapter members also toured Asia Trend Magazine’s Community Learning Center at Orlando Fashion Square Mall.

Lt. Col. Udouj is a long-time member of the Asian American Journalists Association, including its chapter in Hawaii. Udouj, who is Hungarian American, said he has been deployed to all over the United States, the world and the Middle East to set up communications, broadcast stations in disaster areas and combat war zones. His unit also participates in civil war re-enactments.

We thank all veterans and soldiers today and every day for their sacrifices and service to protect our freedom in the United States.
