Remembering Danny Chen

On Oct. 3, 2011, U.S. Army Private Danny Chen, who grew up in Chinatown, took his own life while on duty in a guard tower in Kandahar, Afghanistan after enduring six weeks of physical abuse and bullying by his peers. A lot has transpired in the last 12 months, including two Army investigations into Chen’s death; five of eight soldiers tried in connection with his suicide; a federal law that facilitates the transfer of hazed soldiers out of their military units; and strong advocacy efforts led by the New York chapter of the national civic group, Organization of Chinese Americans (O.C.A.-NY). Here is a timeline of the year’s salient moments following Danny’s heartbreaking death.
