Unaccompanied veteran burial to be held Feb. 27 in Killeen
Today, Texas Veterans Land Board Chairman George P. Bush announced that on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. sharp, the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, Texas will conduct an Unaccompanied Veteran burial for Specialist Hugh Gary Bryan, a United States SP5 Army Veteran.
Specialist Bryan is not expected to have anyone attend his funeral, as no next-of-kin could be contacted. Please help us spread the word and ensure that our United States Army Veteran is not buried alone. Members of the Central Texas community are welcome to attend.
Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery staff has coordinated with the Fort Hood Casualty Office to ensure that Specialist Bryan will receive full military honors. If no next-of-kin presents themselves at the ceremony, the On-Site Representative of the Veterans Land Board will accept the United States flag on Bryan’s behalf.
The Texas Veterans Land Board works with the local community and fellow Veterans service organizations to ensure that NO Veteran is EVER left behind. Please join us to honor his life and service with a full military burial.
