    We will raise a glass to pay Honors to these returned Warriors. Rest easy at Home Men.

    I will be intransit from Tampa next Saturday. A notice will be sent to Compatriots in Carrollton. There should be a good crowd to pay respects to PFC Hulett Thompson.

    Thanks for the update Hondo.

    An announcement published five days ago in the South Bend Tribune newspaper says that PFC Arthurholtz will be buried (next to his parents) at 11:00 am, on Saturday December 7th, at the Saint Joseph Memorial Park Cemetery in Granger.

    Rest now in our home soil, fellow Hoosier.

    All the details, and a very nice obituary, are available here for CPL Earl W. Duncan:

    His funeral and burial are 30 November 2019 in Gastonia, NC.

    Checked all four funeral homes in Carrollton GA and none has additional information posted at this time. However, PFC Thompson has a memorial marker beside his parents graves in the Clem Cemetery at the Clem United Methodist Church in Carrollton.

    There is much more information about PFC Thompson posted here: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/40564623/hulett-allen-thompson

    It is highly likely that PFC Thompson will be buried in the Clem Cemetery, but we do not have independent verification of that detail.

    RIP, PFC Thompson wherever your final resting place may be.
