The comments here make me smile: The entire country has not yet gone to h###.
The story is misleading in that in the summer of 1944, PFC Carneal was killed on Saipan which is part of the Northern Mariannas.
“.. his family has chosen to bury him in Kentucky”.
He’s home. I feel so sorry and yet happy for his nephew who remembered his Uncle so fondly. He taught him how to throw a curve ball, came to his games and he remembers hugging all of them before leaving. I can only imagine that it is a comfort to have him buried near their home and to fully know what happened to him. (I say this because I think it is better to know what happened then to have a lifetime of wondering).
Also, kind of hard to become a veteran when one is KIA.
Thank you for posting this. The original article is incoherent, the basic facts are ignored and the rest is a jumble of disconnected, random information. Journalists today can’t seem to write, they can’t seem to report, and they can’t get their facts straight.
If they could do all those things, they could get real jobs.
My Dad was a veteran of the ETO...
He said the Heroes were the ones
that did not get to come home.
Rest In Peace .
I think all the veterans that did come home.. truly say this and believe it. My Dad said it (Korea) and a now deceased WWII vet we knew. May they all rest in peace.
