Lewis to serve as Port grand marshal

Burt Lewis is a 76 year Port Washington resident.

Born and raised here and a graduate of the Port Washington Schools  System. Burt was called to serve his country during the “Cold War” and did his basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. Burt  was then deployed to Germany during the building of the Berlin Wall. While in Germany he served with the 54th Combat Engineers.

Returning to the United States and Honorably discharged from the military, he returned to Port Washington and married Antonette Terranova, also of Port Washington. They’ve been married for 46 years and have just recently enjoyed the arrival of their first grand child.

Having served his country it was time for Burt to serve his community. He joined the United States Post Office and serviced the Port Washington community for 39 years, retiring in 2005.

Burt is a very active member of Port Washington’s American Legion Post 509 and an important part of every meeting. Port Washington Post 509 is proud to present Mr. Burt Lewis as our 2017  Memorial Day grand marshal.
