It's been a long time coming, but finally two war veterans will have a final and dignified resting place.
For more than 100 years, the cremated remains of two brothers, Civil War Army veterans from Indiana have sat on a funeral home shelf, unclaimed and largely forgotten.
Now their remains will get a final resting place at the Arlington National Cemetery. Today, the cemetery dedicates a new Columbarium Court to receive the cremated remains of service members.
It's the ninth columbarium in Arlington, where more than 400,000 are interred. The first six remains to be interred were recovered by the Missing In America Project. The organization works with funeral homes across the country to recover the remains of service members that have gone unclaimed, sometimes for decades.
The service today includes the two brothers as well as service members from all four military branches.
