Semper Fidelis- -- Marine laid to rest

Pfc. George H. Traver was killed in action on Nov. 20, 1943. His body was one of many found earlier this year in the Gilbert Islands, just off the coast of Hawaii. Hundreds of citizens, many with no relation to Traver, came out to celebrate the return of his remains during a processional to and from a funeral service held in his honor at the St. James Catholic church in his hometown of Chatham, New York.
