McGill honored on Veterans Day

James A. McGill served in the United States Armed Forces from 1945 until 1971.

He died on June 3 of this year, but he did not receive a military funeral or any service at all as his cremated remains went unclaimed.

That did not sit well with a longtime family friend, Susie Kries, and on Sunday, Veterans Day, McGill’s service to his country was recognized during American Legion Post 149’s Veterans Day service held at Morgan County Courthouse in Wartburg.
