Hon K. Lee

Author Hon K. Leeabout this book: This book is about my growing up in New York's Chinatown, leading Marines in combat, joining the CIA, becoming a martial arts teacher, and fulfilling my dream to practice Chinese medicine.

I had three reasons for writing my memoir. First it's meant as a valentine to all the people whose paths have intersected mine. Second, I hope this book can contribute to the "New York Chinatown Oral History Project to capture the valuable memories of survival and success for our children, ourselves, and for history." Last, I want to answer questions like: "How could you go from being a combat Marine to a qigong teacher, and from being a clandestine operations officer to an acupuncturist? How did you switch roles, and what's one got to do with the other?"

My seemingly divergent life paths sometimes crossed, often converged, but ultimately led back to my cultural roots. Along the way I discovered my life purpose: serving others. I hope readers, whether interested in military affairs, espionage, martial arts or Chinese medicine, will get a taste for what it's like to: survive an enemy artillery barrage; run a secret CIA operation, study with a top martial arts master; and treat patients with Chinese medicine and qigong.
