    Memorial service for eight officers killed in Black Hawk crash (2020/01/14)

    A memorial service was held Tuesday to honor the eight military officers killed in a Black Hawk helicopter on Jan. 2. Taiwan’s top military commander Shen Yi-ming was among the deceased. Mourners, including President Tsai Ing-wen and all the government ministers, gathered at the Air Force headquarters in Taipei to say a final farewell.

    Tsai presented Shen’s rank insignia, badge of honor, and posthumous presidential citation to his widow. The Black Hawk crash killed eight officers who were honored in a memorial service on Tuesday.

    In her capacity as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, President Tsai presided at the ceremony, naming aloud each of the deceased. She also spoke directly to service members.

    Tsai Ing-wen
    In the future, brothers and sisters of the armed forces, hold fast to your posts and keep this country safe. That is the best way to bid farewell and to mourn. I will now, as commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Republic of China, hold a final roll call for our fallen. Chief of the General Staff Shen Yi-ming. Chief Master Sergeant Han Cheng-hung. Political Warfare Bureau Deputy Director Major General Yu Chin-wen. Intelligence Staff Office Deputy Assistant Major General Hung Hung-chun. Helicopter pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Yeh Chien-i. General staff officer, Major Huang Sheng-hang. Co-pilot Captain Liu Chen-fu. Chief Engineer Master Sergeant Hsu Hung-pin. Thank you all for your service. Your mission is complete. Your country will be forever grateful, and you will be dearly missed. May your soul rest in peace.

    The memorial service was called the military’s largest in history. It was attended by the president and vice president, along with all the ministers. The ceremony was broadcast live at a separate venue open to the public.

    Mirage jets crossed the sky in formation, paying tribute to the fallen. Amid a 19-gun salute, a motorcade made its way to the Second Funeral Parlor, where the bodies will be cremated before burial at Wuchihshan or the Air Force cemetery.
