CMAFS Asian Pacific Heritage Month
CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN AIR FORCE STATION, Colo. - Hula dancers perform at Cheyenne Mountain AFS May 18, 2012, as part of the Asian Pacific Heritage Month event which included an Eskrima martial arts demonstration, educational materials and food. The month of May was chosen by Congress to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants. (U.S. Air Force photo/Arni Rohan)
