Witness to the toll of war

Mahomet’s Mitch Chang had a great desire to serve his country in Vietnam when he first joined the Air Force in the late 1960s.

Born and raised in Hawaii as the son of a Navy civil service officer, he decided to volunteer to join the Air Force when “fighting was getting heavy” in Vietnam, as a college student in Guam.
