WWII American Hero and 21 Year Local 328 Member Gets Honored for Service

On January 3rd, 2020, Louis San Miguel was surprised at work when a large group made up of family, police, fire, union, company, and public officials greeted him with accolades he has long earned. Louis served as a Lead Scout behind enemy lines in Germany, France and Italy with the 103rd Infantry during WWII. His incredible life journey was made known to Senator Walter Timilty during the Stop & Shop strike. When the Senator joined workers on the picket line at the Braintree location in a show of support, members of our union family helped tell Lou’s amazing story. Senator Timilty got to work after that planning to hold this honor ceremony and did so on a day that was special: Lou was celebrating his 95th birthday. Lou was joined by his wife of 67 years, Lucille. Together, they have called Braintree their home for the past 52 years, where they raised four daughters. We are so honored Lou has been a member of our union family for 21 years at Stop & Shop and we thank him for his service to our country. He truly is an amazing person with a big heart and continues to serve the community he loves.
