Veterans who died decades ago will finally be buried at Dayton National Cemetery. The servicemen were not missing, their cremated remains have been in plain sight, sitting on shelves in Columbus area funeral homes. A group of volunteers has taken up the cause of the unclaimed remains- trying to find the vets’ families, give them a proper burial.
