Announcement on Scheduling of the DC Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony
While many of us had envisioned a Fall, 2019 Congressional Gold Medal (CGM) Ceremony in Washington, DC, the Recognition Project team has determined that this Ceremony will be held in Spring, 2020. The exact date is still not known until the process of working with the U.S. Mint on the design, reviews, approval, and manufacture of our Chinese American WWII Veterans CGM is completed. Once the U.S. Mint finalizes and approves the design, they send notification to Congress, which begins the process of scheduling the Medal Ceremony. Once Congress sets the date in coordination with our Project team, we’ll be able to advise all confirmed Veterans and/or their next-of-kin family members of specific travel details, including the hotel accommodations, transportation within the city, other venues, costs, etc. We will also arrange for limited transportation to designated events for veterans and those with limited mobility
Regional Congressional Gold Medal Ceremonies will be conducted at locations across the country to be determined after the DC Ceremony. Please continue to look for these updates sent directly to your email from CGMCommittee@caww2.org or keep posted by visiting our website at www.caww2.org.
