Elwood funeral home asks for attendees at veteran’s funeral after no surviving family found


President Donald Trump will honor US service members who made the ultimate sacrifice when he visits Arlington National Cemetery in recognition of Memorial Day Monday morning.

ELWOOD, Ind. — A funeral home in Madison County hopes people will attend a funeral for a veteran after authorities could not track down any of his relatives.

A public service will be held Thursday for George Green who passed away earlier this month. Green was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving in the Korean War. He earned several honors, including four Bronze Star medals.

To date, however, no surviving family has been located. The public and fellow veterans are encouraged to attend the service at Copher – Fesler – May Funeral Home Thursday morning from 11 a.m. – noon.

Green will be buried with military honors by U.S. Military and Elwood V.F.W. honor guard at Marion National Cemetery.
