2023 Honor Our Fallen – Heroes Day of Service

April 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDT


2023 Honor Our Fallen - Heroes Day of Service

Celebration of Life, Diversity, and Service: an Event to make friends, Honor Fallen Heroes, and Learn About Our Forgotten Shared History

Your Talent and Time is Needed to make a difference in our community. Help Mark the Final Resting Places of Forgotten Heroes of History – at Seattle’s oldest integrated cemetery and resting place of Bruce Lee.

This event also corresponds with the traditional Memorial Day Festival known as Ching Ming. Volunteers encouraged to bring incense and flowers.


Lakeview is the final resting place of many heroes of Asian American and Pacific Island Decent to include AAPI military veterans of both World Wars to present. Among them are Bruce Lee, 3 presidents, and veterans as far back as the civil war have been put to rest here. Not only is it the oldest cemetery in Seattle dating back to 1869, but even in times when society was separated all races and religions are found buried here too! However, these grounds are huge and take considerable resources for the cemetery to upkeep.


In December 2022 with Wreaths Across America, we discovered that over 1000 graves of American veterans presently lay unknown at Lakeview Cemetery. Among the veteran graves that were found several were covered with debris. This is unacceptable to us and together with community service groups and historic societies from throughout the region we have been busy archiving list of names to be charted into a new map for future generations.


In traditional culture, the Ching-ming Holiday is a time where ancestors are honored and given offerings of flowers. It is an annual “tomb sweeping” season. Ahead of Memorial Day 2023 come join our service to pay homage in Honor of Our Fallen Heroes, whom include many Asian American and Pacific Islander WW2 Gold Medal Recipients.
