Unclaimed remains of 3 veterans to be inurned

– The unclaimed remains of veterans of the Civil War and both World Wars that were discovered in the vaults of a funeral home group will be inurned next week in a northeastern Indiana cemetery.

The remains are those of Civil War Pvt. Hiram Maine, World War I Pvt. Forest Smith and World War II Cpl. Leo M. Valdez Jr. All three served in the Army.

Their cremated remains will be inurned at Marion National Cemetery following a ceremony April 26 in Zionsville, just north of Indianapolis.

The cremated remains were recovered from Flanner and Buchanan Funeral Centers’ unclaimed storage vaults by a group called the Missing in America Project. The group seeks to provide funerals for any veterans with honorable discharges.
