A Michigan Vietnam veteran who dedicated his later life to honoring those who served has passed away. He had no known family so the funeral home handling his arrangements is asking any one who can make it to support his burial.

The Niles Daily Star printed the plea from Brown Funeral Home. The service for Wayne Wilson will be held on July 17 at 2PM at Sliverbrook Cemetary, which is located on M-51 in Niles.
