Remembering a Local Hero

This coming September, PBS will be airing the Ken Burns series The Vietnam War. This 10 part series will begin on September 17, 2017 and will feature many stories, among them the story of a 20-year old Seattleite named Lewis Albanese. Pfc Albanese received the Congressional Medal of Honor for the incredible acts of selflessness and heroism which cost him his life in Vietnam.

We are honored to have this young man rest with us in the Washelli Veterans’ Cemetery, and hope you will watch the interview with his sister, Rosita.
