The remains of 36 veterans stored for decades at a Scottsdale mortuary have been laid to rest at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona in Phoenix. Officials say the cremated remains had gone unclaimed for up to 50 years. One set of remains had been at the mortuary since 1963. The men were veterans of World Wars One and Two, Korea and Vietnam.
Though none had died in combat, all had been honorably discharged. The Arizona Republic reports that the remains were buried Tuesday at the cemetery after a ceremony.
