JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- A send-off fit for a hero.
"It's proper and fitting that we give them a proper burial," Kathy Church said.
Marine Corps First Class Private T.A. Brown made his final stop at Jacksonville National Cemetery.
Naugle Funeral Home found his remains a few months ago and alerted the Missing In America Project.
Its goal is to get servicemen and women the burial they deserve.
"We go into funeral homes and we try to locate, identify and then inter the unclaimed remains of our veterans, their spouses and their dependents," Church continued.
None of Brown's family was there, but the flag was given to a representative. The process was solemn, but we're told, necessary to meet military standards.
The beautiful part was the red, white and blue that represent our country hanging proudly for the entire ceremony. For the Missing In America Project, the burial is its way of saying 'thank you.'
According to MIAP, 41 veterans are waiting to be buried in Jacksonville.
