Los Angeles AFB Celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, celebrated throughout the month of May, honors the generations of Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and Native Hawaiians who contributed and continue to contribute to the success of this nation. The American story as we know it would be impossible without the strength, contributions, and legacies of people with ancestral roots in Asia and the islands of the Pacific who have helped build and unite this country in each successive generation. In 1992, May was designated AAPIHM. The month of May was selected in recognition of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in the United States on May 7, 1843, and the significant contributions of Chinese pioneers to the completion of North America's transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. This year’s theme for AAPIHM is: Advancing Leaders Through Collaboration. During the month, Los Angeles Air Force Base has various events planned to celebrate the AAPI culture.
