After being honored by his hometown Monday and Tuesday, Chief Warrant officer Andy Howes will be buried today in Arlington National Cemetery.
Services will be held at Memorial Chapel on the Ft. Myers property at 11:00 a.m. ET. Following the services, the procession will go to Arlington with the casket riding on a horse drawn caisson. Also participating in the services will be an Army band and a firing squad will fire the 21 gun salute.
The remains will be interred in section 60, grave 9787. Several people from Knox are attending the services along with the family.
The 19-year-old Howes, who was returned to Knox after he was missing in action in Vietnam for 41 years, was part of a tremendous outpouring of patriotism when his remains came into Knox. The support continued at his funeral service Tuesday evening.
