Episode 2618 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast features a story about the service to be held for two unclaimed Vietnam Veterans at the Beaufort National Cemetery. The featured story by Explore Beaufort appeared on the explorebeaufortsc.com website and was titled; Unclaimed Veterans with no family being laid to rest at Beaufort National Cemetery.

The military says, ‘no man left behind.’ That’s why two unclaimed Vietnam Veterans are being laid to rest at the Beaufort National Cemetery and the invitation for attendance is open to literally anyone and everyone.

The Beaufort National Cemetery has put out a call for volunteers to attend the service of two Veterans who are being interred at our National Cemetery, and stand as their family, because they have none.

The two veterans are Donald L. Brown and David R. Dickson, both US Navy and Vietnam Veterans.

The Staff will be positioned throughout the cemetery to provide instructions on where to park and then walk back to the committal shelter for the service. Accommodations will be made to allow the drop off and pickup of guests with mobility issues at the shelter.

The Beaufort National Cemetery is a beautiful and historically important site located along Boundary Street and is a must-see when visiting Beaufort’s historic sites. With Spanish moss-draped live oaks looking down on the lines of white headstones, the cemetery holds a lot of historic significance.

The cemetery staff asks that all share and help get the word out that these Veterans are NOT forgotten. They’re unclaimed veterans; in Beaufort, we are all their family.

If you have any additional questions about the service, please contact the staff at Beaufort National Cemetery at 843-524-3925
