12 Texas Veterans finally laid to rest

KILLEEN - Twelve Texas veterans were finally laid to rest Monday after years of being unclaimed in funeral homes.

Funeral homes across the state were unable to contact the family members of the twelve servicemen who were buried Monday, April 29.

The Missing in America Project joined with the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery to give those heroes a proper burial. Some of the veteran's service goes all the way back to World War II.

"To honor these people who serve in our military, and ensure they are free today. It makes me feel good to show respect to them," said Joe Lake, a Patriot Guard Rider.

After the burial, several veterans stayed around to pay respect to all of the servicemen buried at the cemetery.
