Every Day is a Holiday

(YouTube link)

Paul Loong was born in Malaysia, and served with the British Royal Air Force during World War II. He spent three years in Japanese prison camps. Then Loong worked for years to become a U.S. citizen, which included joining the U.S. Army during the Korean War. But even then, he had to fight for citizenship. Afterward, Loong became a doctor for the Veterans Administration. And that's just the barest details of his incredible life. Now 88 years old, Loong only recently began to share his wartime stories when he revealed a diary he kept as a POW. Loong's daughter, Theresa Loong, produced a documentary on her father's life that will air this weekend on PBS. Check your local listings for Every Day is a Holiday. Link to story.
