Join us for a screening of "Sijan," a feature length documentary exploring Lance's life and legacy. In 1976 the US Congress recognized Captain Lance P. Sijan with the Medal of Honor for his actions in Vietnam that went above and beyond the call of duty.

“SIJAN” will reveal through interviews of eyewitnesses that cared for Lance the last month of his life, details that have never been told before. Historic archival footage will illustrate the pathos of the time as well as treasured family footage and documents that paint a broader stroke of Lance the artist, the athlete, the son, the brother and the friend.

This is a film that explores courage, determination, love and loss as well as how strength and commitment of one can affect so many.
