A World War I veteran whose remains were lost for nearly a century is to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery next Wednesday, a Marine official said.

First Sgt. George H. Humphrey died Sept. 15, 1918, during the Battle of Saint-Mihiel — one of the first U.S. solo offenses during the war.

Humphrey is believed to have served with 6th Marines, 2nd Infantry Division. Fellow Marines buried his body in an unmarked grave, west of the French town of Rembercourt-sur-Mad, but post-war efforts to locate the gravesite were not successful, said Gunnery Sgt. William J. Dixon, the Corps’ funeral director.

Where did you find this? Did it say what time the burial is. I would love to go.
