Forgotten Soldiers receive burial with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery

Follow up to this story: Buffalo Soldier, Vietnam Medic, and WWII Sailor will finally come home to Arlington

Thanks to the Missing in America Project and others, the remains of three American heroes were buried with full military homors at Arlington National Cemetary today.

Their final journey across America started on May 20 from different states as far away as Arizona and California.

Here is the motorcade in Kentucky.

And this is a story about today's ceremony at Arlington.

They were:
Buffalo Soldier Corporal Isaiah Mays, Medal of Honor recipient
Vietnam War Medic James William Dunn, Silver Star recipient
WWII Boatswain’s Mate First Class Johnnie Franklin Callahan, Silver Star recipient.

Rest in peace, and welcome home.
