Support a veteran by attending his funeral.

The Killeen Daily Herald reports that the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen will be conducting an unaccompanied veteran burial for Navy veteran Edward Merrick Tuesday, August 8 at 1PM.

Mr. Merrick served in the Navy from 1972 to 1973. Unfortunately, no members of his family will be able to attend. Hewett-Arney Funeral Home in Temple has coordinated with the Navy Honor Guard to ensure that Merrick will receive military honors.

You are welcome and encouraged to attend as well and ensure that a man who served his country does not go alone. Plug 11463 State Highway 195 into your GPS to find the cemetery.

Sometimes you can support a veteran simply by showing up at his funeral. Here is that time. A little help if you please.
