LCol Yu receives the United States of America’s Joint Service Commendation Medal


On 3 June 2021, LCol Howard Yu received the American Joint Service Commendation Medal from LGen Mark Schwartz, the U.S. Security Coordinator (USSC) to Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA). LCol Yu, Canadian Army, distinguished himself through exceptionally meritorious achievement from November 2020 to March 2021. He went above and beyond to enable the PA during a cessation of US funding to Palestinian Security Sector Reform. His efforts proved critical to the maintenance of USSC and PA relationships during a period of political tension while also being critical to both maintaining and improving PA Security Forces communications infrastructure. The distinct accomplishments of LCol Yu reflect great credit to himself, the Office of USSC, the CAF, and Canada.
