On Sunday, November 11, 2012, the Seattle Seahawks honored veterans during their game with the New York Jets, spotlighting one living veteran from each of our military conflicts. 

They selected a Shoreline resident, Ken Christophersen, to represent veterans from the Viet Nam era. 

Ken is retired from Lunde Marine where he was an expert Electronics Technician responsible for installing $1/2 million systems on very large fishing vessels. He has lived in Shoreline for the past two decades where, with his wife of 30 years Jan, he raised three sons - Karl, Erik and Bjorn - all of whom are graduates of Shorewood High School. 

Ken was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army and served in Viet Nam in the 11th Armored Calvary. 

He is a Purple Heart recipient. 

Ken is active in his church, the Sons of Norway and is the Senior Vice Commander in the Blackburn-Aurora VFW Post 3348 which meets monthly in the American Legion hall at NE 146th St. and 17th Ave NE in Shoreline.
