I hope this photo helps a little bit. The original caption reads:
(FX2-MAY 20) “SHE’S ONLY WOMAN OFFICER IN CHINESE ARMY”–COL. ARIADNE LEE (RIGHT), 22, ONLY WOMAN OFFICER IN CHINESE ARMY, CHATS WITH HER FATHER, GENERAL P.T. LEE, COMMANDANT OF THE NORTHEAST COMBAT COMMAND HEADQUARTERS AT MUKDEN, MANCHURIA. COL. LEE HAS BEEN IN THE CHINESE ARMY NINE MONTHS AND IS A LANGUAGE EXPERT FOR THE HEADQUARTERS. (AP WIREPHOTO) (NRW20923JW) 1946
In a close-up, General Lee has a pin which says "13A", possibly meaning the 13th Army. Other than that, I have no further info on him.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but does anyone know about her whereabouts after the war? Is she still around today?
