Missing In America Project – Dayton

30 MIAP at Dayton National Cemetery 9-16-2014

On September 16th, Compatriots Mike Gunn and Ian Cunningham of the Cincinnati Chapter attended a “Missing In America Project”  ceremony at The Dayton National Cemetery.  Fourteen previously unclaimed cremains of military veterans were honored with a formal military burial.  The MIAP is a nationwide effort in finding veterans who have been cremated and left unclaimed on shelves at funeral facilities, after families had not claimed those remains.  The Veterans given a final resting place today were born as early as 1900, with death dates as long ago as 1973.
