LAGOP: “Statement on the Passing of My Quang Cao”

October 22, 2010

Baton Rouge – Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere released the following statement upon receiving the news that My Quang Cao, the father of Congressman Joseph Cao, had passed away:

“On behalf the Republican Party of Louisiana I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Joseph and the entire Cao family. As an officer in the South Vietnamese Army, My Quang Cao not only stood up to the Communists but was subjected to both physical and psychological torture as a prisoner of war in Communist ‘re-education camps.’ Though separated by great distance for much of their lives, it is quite evident that the freedom loving spirit of My Quang Cao, his courage of conviction, and his belief in a cause greater than himself carry on through his son Joseph and the Cao family. Our hearts and prayers are with the Cao family in their time of sorrow and we wish them the sure and certain hope that their husband, father, and grandfather lives on through their memories.”
