In Loving Memory ... Col Harry George Albright.


You may be gone, no longer living on this earth; but you will live on - in the memories of your family and friends. There will always be a part of you living in your family and those who knew you and loved you. You will live on because we remember you!


COL (Retired) US Army, WWII, Korea, Vietnam
One of 324 US Soldiers ever entitled to wear the Combat Infantry Badge with 2 Stars.
******************************************

SPECIAL FORCES FACTS

When asked what is the rarest award that a soldier can receive, most people say "The Medal of Honor". Actually it is the third award of the Combat Medical Badges only two soldiers have received that honor.

The next rarest award is the third award of the Combat Infantry Badge of which there were only 308 that are recorded at the Infantry Museum.

************************************************

Harry George Albright, 92, a former co-managing editor of The Advertiser and a retired Army Reserve colonel, died Sunday. He was 92.

Albright was born in Seattle and came to Hawai'i to write for The Advertiser.

He joined the Army in 1940 and was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action during a Japanese air raid at Funa Futi in 1943. He later wrote a book, "Pearl Harbor: Japan's Fatal Blunder."

After World War II, Albright rejoined The Advertiser and rose to co-managing editor.

In 1948 he became public information officer for Tripler Army Hospital and, in 1950, secretary of the Board of Underwriters of Hawaii.

He retired as a reserve colonel at age 60. He retired in 1980 as executive vice president of the Hawaii Insurance Association.

He is survived by his wife, Janet; daughters Marcia Albright-Hermans and Carolyn Albright; brother Theodore Albright; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at the National Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl. Aloha attire. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of one's choice.


Many thanks to David Blewster Knight for locating, photographing and posting the headstone.
