Remains identified for burial in central Ky. veterans cemetery
Posted: Feb 08, 2010 8:16 PM PST
Louisville area volunteers with the Missing in America project have matched the remains of 32 veterans and nine spouses with military records. Their work will allow the 41 people to be buried or entombed in the central Kentucky veterans cemetery in Radcliff in mid-June.

The volunteers’ work started with the 2008 discovery of about 200 sets of cremated remains found vandalized in the now-closed Eastern Cemetery in Louisville’s Phoenix Hill neighborhood.

Some of the ashes and bone fragments had been scattered or removed.

Missing in America volunteers took custody of 41 remains from University of Louisville on February 8, 2010. Louisville Memorial Gardens will hold them temporarily until a formal ceremony at Radcliff.

If you recognize any of these names or have questions, contact Dale LeMond of Missing in America at 502-376-1755 for more information.

Here are the names, branch of service and era of service for those people. Spellings and other information are as provided by Missing in America volunteers and Louisville Memorial Gardens.
