    I don't have to be at work until 230, I'm gonna try. He shouldn't be put to rest alone.

    Thank you. I also passed it on to the Northeast Rangers FB page and some SF guys. I’m pretty sure it’s been growing wings for days now with local Vet’s .orgs and possibly local media. Hope so, those guys and girls deserve everything we can give them.

    I have a prior commitment already that day but am trying to get it changed so I can go also.

    Thanks for posting Cams. It would be sad for him to be buried without due respect!

    438th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion took part in the Ardennes campaign. My uncle (rest his soul) was there as well (172nd Field Artillery Battalion). May McCue be remembered for his service and find peace.

    Amazing turn out. The road leading to the cemetery was stop & go traffic. People were parking on the side streets and walking to the funeral. James McCue had no surviving family but he had an extended one today.
