“It truly is a privilege for me to be able to sit down with Ed and to talk with him about his amazing life experiences,” Sen. Hwang said. “Ed is an inspiration to me and to so many in Fairfield. He is an American hero who loves this country, and I hope area residents will enjoy this discussion as much as I did.”
