Army Air Forces Staff Sgt. John H. Canty of Winsted, Connecticut, was 22 when his B-26 Marauder with a crew of eight crashed in 1944.
His remains were identified by scientists using DNA analysis and on Tuesday he received a burial with full military honors at the cemetery outside Washington, D.C.
A horse-drawn wagon carried his remains to the burial site at the service attended by over a dozen relatives from Connecticut, Georgia and Illinois. The flag from the casket was presented to Canty’s nephew, 78-year-old Wayne Brazeau, of Moultrie, Georgia.
