Next, I want thank my wife Chia-Yi who knows how to be a good wife she has always been to take care the family and our daughter, so I can come to work every day carefree. “Rescue” is a challenging job, and I would like to see myself keep improve in what I do, so I can put my skills to good use, which is to help everyone in need of help. Again, thank you, everyone at the Corps, for bringing this honor to me. Thank you.
