Dear Readers,


Those of you that have been following our posts of a fallen U.S. WWII soldier for the past year, ever since his remains were discovered in Alsace, France, will be happy to read the conclusion of this touching story.

As a reminder, we encourage you to have a look at the full account:


PFC Cecil E. Harris, KIA in Dambach, Alsace, France on January 2, 1945, and MIA until September 2013 will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery on October 22, 2014 at the presence of his family.

We would like to reiterate our sincerest thanks to the French authorities, to the personnel of the Lorraine American Cemetery, to JPAC and to everyone else involved in the finding, repatriation and identification of PFC Harris’ remains.

Until they all come home — PFC Cecil E Harris has.

Our thoughts and prayers are with PFC Harris’ family.
