Unaccompanied Veteran Burial At Rock Island Arsenal Tomorrow
Veterans laid everything on the line for us in their service, and many don't come home. That's why we should treasure the ones who do, and show up for them when it's needed.
Thursday, April 20th, 2023, United States Marines PFC David Craig Yoder will be laid to rest at the Rock Island Arsenal.
According to the Rock Island Arsenal, PFC Yoder has no family or friends that are able to attend his burial, so they're calling upon the community to show out for a soldier who showed up when we needed him to.
David Yoder served with the United States Marines from 1976-1979 and passed away at the age of 63 years old.
The burial ceremony will take place at 2pm in a committal shelter on the island, Shelter #2.
A visitor's pass will be required for entry. Stop by Wednesday or Thursday to get a pass near the Moline gate of the island. Expect a 5-10 minute process to get the visitor's pass. The pass will be valid for one year.
