City Tech Student Drapes Hussein Statue

  City Tech Student Drapes Hussein Statue
Anna Fu and Edward Chin
One of the most memorable images of the recent invasion of Iraq was that of a young marine clambering up one of the seemingly ubiquitous monumental statues of Saddam Hussein and draping the dictator’s head, first with an American and then an Iraqi flag.

Responsible for that Kodak moment was a once-and-future student at New York City College of Technology. Edward Chin is seen here with his wife Anna Fu, a current City Tech student who expects to get her Associate’s degree in civil engineering technology next year.

Corporal Chin left the College in 1999 to enlist in the marines, and he is planning to apply for readmission after his release from the military this summer. Chin hopes to complete a Bachelor’s in architectural technology, and Fu (who holds an NSF scholarship) will be working toward a Bachelor’s in civil engineering. After graduation and working in their respective fields, the couple envision a husband-and-wife consulting firm that will wave the flag for environmental clean-up and protection.
