Remains of unclaimed veterans laid to rest

On October 24th we participated in the fifth unclaimed remains service organized by Vietnam Veterans of America #1071 at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver. The Colorado Patriot Guard Riders stood a flag line as the cremains of 14 servicemen were carried respectfully by VVA members from the hearse to the shelter for the ceremony. Rick Crandall of the Colorado Freedom Memorial spoke. The Honor Bell tolled at the conclusion of the service; we were honored to have Army PFC Joshua Flores join us as the belladier for this ceremony. We were humbled to take part in this special ceremony. You can see a brief news clip about the event here.
