Join Us For An Unaccompanied Veteran Burial At The Rio Grande Valley State Veterans Cemetery
MISSION — On Thursday, July 13th at 10:00 a.m. sharp, the Rio Grande Valley State Veterans Cemetery will conduct an Unaccompanied Veteran Burial for U.S Air Force Veteran Airman First Class (A/1C) Don R. Marcell. Born on January 30, 1934, A/1C Marcell served from October 1951 to October 1955. A/1C Marcell received the National Defense Service Medal for his service to our nation.
A/1C Marcell is not expected to have any next-of-kin attend his burial. Please help us spread the word and ensure that this U.S. Air Force Veteran is not buried alone. Members of the Mission community are encouraged to attend.
A/1C Marcell will receive military honors. If no next-of-kin is present at the burial, a Veterans Land Board Representative will accept the United States flag on his behalf.
The Texas Veterans Land Board works with the local communities and fellow Veterans service organizations to ensure that NO Veteran is EVER left behind.
