以下為華埠退伍軍人會悼文:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our Post Commander, Man Ho Chan. Man Ho was a member of the Vietnam War era. 

He was born in Hong Kong and grew up in the South End of Boston, Massachusetts and went to Boston English High School. He joined the US Navy in January of 1973 to December of 1975 and served as the Ship Serviceman Barber (SHB3) on board the U.S.S. Mount Vernon (LSD-39). In April 1975, during the Fall of Saigon, the USS Mount Vernon was one of the many ships that participated in Operation Frequent Wind, evacuating American civilians and refugees in Vietnam.

After the service, Man Ho came back to Boston and continued his education and graduated from the Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1979 and worked at Teradyne, Inc., for 39 years as an Electrical Engineer. 

He joined the American Legion in 2012 and was elected to Sgt-at-Arms (2013-2015), Jr. Vice Commander (2015-2017), Sr. Vice Commander (2017-2019), and then elected Post Commander in 2019 to the present. Man Ho participated and led many activities throughout the years, including our annual toy drives, Memorial Day flag planting, and our many parades. Him and his wife, Paula were very active in the Chinatown community, having been involved with several Chinatown organizations, including the Gee How Oak Tin Association of New England and the Shun Yi Association, among a few.

We are grateful for our Commander's service and for the many years he has dedicated to the Legion and to the Chinatown community. 

Fair winds and following seas, Commander. We salute you.
