Missing in America Project takes remains to Sierra Vista

By Rikki Mitchell. CREATED Oct 7, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson veterans are doing their part to make sure no troop is forgotten.

They escorted the remains of 42 unclaimed American veterans from Tucson to Sierra Vista with U.S. flags flying.

It was all part of the Missing in America project, and the organization assembles twice a year for memorials just like this one.

Combat vets and several American legion posts were only two of several organizations represented.
