The SAR Color Guard at the DFW National Cemetery.
December 7, 2012


In the words of Ann Sielert: "On this very special day, remembering Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, a KIA/MIA soldier from the Korean War, came home to America for his final resting place. He was Sgt. Bobby Ray King, and as an unidentified soldier, was buried in the Cemetery of the Pacific also known as "the Punchbowl". Don and I visited there on our last trip to Hawaii in Honolulu. It is a beautiful, very serene setting. He was finally identified by his chest X-ray and his teeth and was brought home for a proper military funeral."

"On this beautiful sunny day, there were six men in Revolutionary War unforms standing an honor guard for him. They were (photo left to right) James Jefferson Johnson, Jr., Bill Neisel, Don Sielert, Blair Rudy, Montie Monzingo (East Fork Trinity Chapter) and Dan Reed, Plano chapter SAR President." Here are more photos of the event.
